Along the Arctic Circle lies a small island called Neversink, whose jagged cliffs and ice-gouged rocks are home to a colony of odd-looking seabirds called auks, including one Lockley J. Puffin. With their oceanfront views and plentiful supply of fish, the auks have few concerns—few, save for Lockley’s two best friends, Egbert and Ruby, a know-it-all walrus and a sharp-tongued hummingbird.

But all of this is about to change. Rozbell, the newly crowned king of the Owl Parliament, is dealing with a famine on the mainland of Tytonia—and he has long had his scheming eyes on the small colony to the north. Now Neversink’s independence hangs in the balance. An insurgence of owls will inevitably destroy life as the auks know it—unless Lockley can do something about it.

    " I fell in love with Wolverton's characters early on. I really hope that we haven't seen the last of the hummingbird, walrus, and puffin. "

    " This was a wonderful adventure story, with arctic animals. I loved the side characters and our hero's nemesis- the tiny, eye-blinking owl. Just be aware the cute illustrations on the cover don't equate a 'cute' story. This was darker than I expected but overall just great. "

    " It is hard to know exactly how to describe this book....unique, fascinating, whimsical and earthy at the same time. While the adventure was exciting, for me it was the characters that kept me reading. The good guys and the villains were portrayed with such truth and humor that you swear you know them. (Really, I think I do!) I don't re-read very many books, but I think I will on this one...but after I go on my own adventure to learn more about arctic birds and Scandinavian mythology. The writing in this book was so intelligent (and yet accessible) that I know I missed some fun things that I want to go back and discover! "
