    " a bit different but interesting, helped Kayleigh do a project on it.. "

    " Bila harus membandingkannya dengan koleksi Harry Potter, buku satu ini juga mempunyai daya pikat tersendiri. Unsur klasik dongeng utamanya tentang putri duyung,selkie dan kraken hampir bermuatan magis untuk menyihir pembacanya. Ketika membaca buku ini pembaca dituntun mengenali kebaikan dalam diri tiap anak yang jika diarahkan dengan baik oleh orang tua maupun orang-orang disekelilingnya akan membawanya ke arah yang dituju. Judul buku Monster Mission (Misi Monster) sepertinya kurang pas untuk buku ini, karna mahluk-mahluk ajaib dalam buku ini bukanlah benar-benar monster yang dalam khayalan tiap orang berwatak pemarah ataupun jahat melainkan mahluk-mahluk rekaan yang sarat dengan emosinya masing-masing....perfect books for kid...

    " sorta stange "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Callie | 1/31/2014

    " I've read this book before, I love Eva Ibbotson. Nice young adult literature. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Treasa | 1/20/2014

    " I am wavering between 3 and 4 stars. I really like Eva Ibbotson's writing, so I would like to give it 4 stars. But I just wasn't that excited about the book. I think the thing that bothered me most was that the aunts kidnapped children. Sure, I know why they did it. But I still didn't like it. And I didn't feel particularly tied to any of the characters, which is disappointing. The aunts were the best-developed characters, but they were also kidnappers, so I couldn't get too emotionally attached to them. The other characters that stood out were the seal (who is a great character, probably my favorite in the book) and various other magical creatures. The children were pretty flat, but likable. The message of the book was good - save the environment and whatnot. So, it was a pleasant read. If I had not been bothered by the whole kidnapping thing, I probably would have love it. "

    " Very good fantasy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 1/1/2014

    " As they get older, several sisters decide that they must kidnap children and bring them to their secluded island home to help with the work of caring for an assortment of unusual sea creatures. I loved it that the aunts thought not shaving their legs made them stronger. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yeonju | 11/23/2013

    " It was interesting and fun! But some of the parts were confusing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paige | 11/20/2013

    " It was actually very good! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz | 10/13/2013

    " Plot doesn't move at a consistent pace as it does in other Ibbotson books. And it gets a little preachy about the environment. But there is morecharacter development than in other Ibbotson books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sophie | 9/30/2013

    " REALLY good too, i just think Eva Ibbotson is a fabulous children's writer. Like most of her books, this book also has some magical characters, and i remember really, really liking this book too. "

    " I didn't get into this one quite as much as some of the other books by Ibbotson that I've read, but it's still quite entertaining. Strong environmental message. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Barrow | 6/20/2012

    " This book was pretty random, making it fun to read because there was no way to tell what was going to happen next. "

    " I can not begin to say how much i LOVE this book.
    It is very entertaining for fantasy readers, but not science fictional.
    It also is set in london and it's perspective shows it. This is a great book for everybody. And though it is really easy to read it's plot is fantabulous!! "
