Child Magazine

On Career Day, Lily finally meets her father's boss, Larry, just an average guy who hides his face under a sack, has a rubbery tail peeking out from his suit, and periodically dumps buckets of brine over his head. Right. Although Lily's dad is clueless ("He has a skin condition, Ms. Nosy"), Larry is actually the leader of evil, laser-eyed whales who plan to take over the world wearing stilts-unless Lily can stop them. These dastardly sea creatures will leave kids laughing in their wake, thanks to deadpan prose, a ludicrous plot, and campy illustrations, all with the exquisite absurdity of a Monty Python skit. (ages 8 to 12)
