An injured sea monster arrives at Farraway Hall and it’s up to Ulf to save his life. But little does he know, there are bigger, deadlier fish to fry. Check out Sea Monsters and Other Delicacies.

Author: David Sinden, Matthew Morgan and Guy Macdonald

Ulf, a part-human boy, part-werewolf, is one of many endangered beasts who lives under the protection of the RSPCB (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Beasts). He and his friends Orson the giant, Tiana the fairy and Druce the gargoyle live at Farraway Hall, a rescue center named after the RSPCB’s founder, Professor Farraway. Before he died, the professor would stop at nothing to protect the engangered beasts.


The Injured Sea Monster

Captain Crab delivers an injured Redback Sea Monster to the RSPBC for Dr. Fielding to examine. She discovers that its brain is bleeding, but she can’t save its life without risking her own. But Ulf won’t accept defeat. If Professor Farraway were still alive, he’d save the Sea Monster. Ulf takes matters into his own hands and finds a miraculous invention—Professor Farraway’s very own venom extractor. It will remove the Sea Monster’s venom from its stinger making it safe to operate on. But what if it doesn’t work? What if the faulty venom extractor was the cause of Professor Farraway’s mysterious death? Ulf will have to take his chances.


The Beast Feast

Meanwhile, deception is stirring in the RSPCB. Professor Farraway’s evil son, Baron Marackai, has returned. He’s serving up a Beast Feast for his foreign guests and he’s determined to add the Redback Sea Monster to the menu. With his friends trapped in Marackai’s hungry clutches, it’s up to Ulf to save the day.


The Bottom Line

Sea Monsters and Other Delicacies is the second book in the new series, An Awfully Beastly Business. This fast-paced adventure is packed with nail-biting, hair-raising action. While the plot is predictable, it’s definitely an exciting read for those who love fantasy and magical creatures.

    " Hello, Link. Wake up. The Great Deku Tree wants to talk to you! " The high-pitched voice barely penetrated my sleep, but thankfully ripped me from the nightmare. The words, however, didn't register, and I acknowledged whoever was speaking to me with a groan. Complete with me rolling over. Then a light started flashing across my closed eyelids, rapidly; almost quickly enough to give me a moment of epilepsy. It was confusing, because I was facing the wall.... As the light did that, the voice came again: " Link, get up! Hey, c'mon! Can Hyrule's destiny  really  depend on such a lazy boy?! " The feminine voice was louder now--not only because it was shouting. It sounded  naturally  loud. But what in the world did she mean by Hyrule's destiny depending on...  me ? Curiosity made me want answers, and the want for those answers prompted me to roll back over, sit up and the edge of the bed, and sleepily open my eyes. The interior of my house was still dim... it must've been dawn. My eyes widened more than being just open when I saw the blue ball of light floating in my vision... with barely visible, crystal-clear wings. I was being addressed by a  fairy . Instead of being a typical 11-year-old and responding verbally, I straightened up and rested my hands on my lap. My attention was fully on this fairy, the only one to speak directly to me in my life. " You finally woke up! "  her loud voice exclaimed.  " I'm Navi the fairy. The Great Deku Tree asked me to be your partner from now on. Nice to meet you! " I was genuinely shocked.  Finally , I was like every other Kokiri. The smile that spread across my face was uncontrollable... and I couldn't think of what to say. Mido wouldn't be able to make fun of me anymore! "C'mon, he wants to talk to you. Let's go!" Navi called. I hadn't noticed her hover to the doorway, floating by the green curtain that served as a door. I hopped up, adjusted the hem of my green tunic, and put my pointy green hat on as I moved to the door. After exiting, I first brushed some blond locks behind my pointed ears on one side of my face, and then pulled the curtain open and bunched it up behind a hook on the wall, so it would stay open. Navi patiently hovered by my head, lurching downwards almost comically as I descended the ladder attached to my elevated porch. My house was one-of-a-kind; the only one with a porch like that. When I turned to walk up the path, my aquamarine eyes met a familiar pair of sapphire-blue, topped by rich, deep green hair. The bangs were separated from the main body of the hair--chin-length and thick--by a headband just a shade darker than the hair. All of that rested on an eleven-year-old-girl, with pale skin, wearing a more emerald-green sort of vest and shorts. A long-sleeved shirt the same green as her hair was worn underneath the vest, and matching green boots graced her feet. It was Saria, my lifetime friend, accompanied by her lime-green fairy. Since a smile was sufficient greeting for her, I did that, and Saria cheerfully waved back. "Hey, Link! Oh, you've got a fairy now?!" Proudly, I nodded. An excited laugh escaped her lips. " I'm so happy for you! " My already-existent smile widened. "I, uh... thanks. But the Great Deku Tree wants to talk to me. I have to hurry." "He does?" Saria asked. " What an honor! " If it was even possible, her face was expressing more joy than before. "I wonder why...? Wait, you'll find out, hehe. Don't let me stop you! Good luck!" I gave her one last smile, and then started up the brief uphill climb, to where the path branched off into two more. Speeding up into a slow run, I turned right, passing a few Kokiri houses, then shortly reaching the pond. I didn't want to go around; today's events had me happy and energized. So, I hopped across the three little "islands", landing a few feet away from the path between the cliffs that led to the Deku Tree's clearing. Mido was standing at the edge, looking about the greenery all around us, and the surreal trails of light that floated about the forest. I was just about to pass into it when he jumped up and blocked my path. "Halt! What's your business?" he interrogated, in his bossiest voice yet. I knew he was doing this only because he hated me. "I'm going to talk to the Great Deku Tree, of course," I replied in my usual gentle voice. "No. Don't bother him," Mido said in a pompous manner. Being the Kokiri's leader got into his head sometimes... I swear. "But... Navi told me that he said he needed me." "Why? Who's Navi?" he asked. " You got a fairy, eh? Hmph. " "I don't know why..." I answered through clenched teeth. This was beyond irritating. Mido thought for a moment, also clearly relishing my annoyance. "Come back later with a sword and a shield. There's monsters in there. It's not safe." That was probably a load of lies. There were no monsters in Kokiri Forest, period. In frustration, I threw my hands up, and raised my voice--a rare occurrence. Revel in it while it lasts. " Where  in this village am I supposed to find  weapons ?!" Mido giggled. He sounded like a girl when he did, at least to me. "Just look. See ya in a while... or never." I stormed off, avoiding the pond entirely this time, and flopped down against the tree-trunk house right next to the pond with a scowl. The name of whoever owned that house never stuck with me, but he had turned it into a sort of shop a while ago. Which was pointless, because there was no way for any of us to get rupees. Yes, I had a few--ten--but that was collected over the course of my lifetime. Eleven whole years. Navi floated into my line of sight. "Link, your face is adorable when you're mad." I grunted. "Hey... you know the kid who owns this shop? He set a shield made of wood for sale a while ago. Thirty rupees." "I only have ten." "I know how you can get more."
