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.

    Kaitlyn Age: 12  Bio: he was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. Her mother, Jessica Cadice was truly a woman with a heart of gold. while her husband, Anderson, a secret agent working for the English Spies Association. They own a Modern mansion in england.  Kaitlyn in the story, is explained with her personality and relationship with the butler, cook, maid, and others. Chapter 1  Kate was a girl of 12 years old. Kaitlyn, her name to be prefered, Woke up in the middle of the night. sweeping her covers to the side, she stepped out of bed, opening her window to breathe the fresh night air. Contrary to what she expected, the air was misty and very musty. She covered her nose. "In england, why must we be inside clouds at 1 am?  Kaitlyn went downstairs of the blackwell mansion. Her silk slippers made a rough sound over the dark grey carpet on the balcony. Looking over to the kitchen. She smells A fresh Peach pie. She automatically knew who made it. Mr. Baxster, the butler, loved pies. He owned a shop 1 street corner away from the mansion. Kaitlyn went down stairs to find the cook, Miss Laquel, obviously making a variety of pies. Pies scattered everywhere, Kaitlyn scratched her head. Why would mss Laquel make this many cakes at 1 am?   Chapter 2 Kaitlyn decided to investigate the scene. She heard her father talking about "investigating a scene" one time. She Looked for Any clues. She found a Silk blue notebook with a lock on it. She suspected Miss Laque had the key. Nonetheless, It was probably important, so she Hid it in the kitchen cupboard behind the stinky cheese spices. Dad never used them. Mom said they were taking up space. Dad always said he'll get rid of them soon. "Soon=Never. What a waste." She said, holding her nose. She opened one pie. "Ugh! What a horrible smell!" She screamed. The cook rubbed her eyes. "Huh? Who.. Nevermind. Now the pies. " Where was Kaitlyn? Hiding in the window curtain. "Mr. Baxster will LOVE these Pie samples for his bakery." She said in a suggestively Happy voice. She ran upstairs to her room to get dressed, after putting the pies To rest in her Home-sewed bag. She put the two samples of the stinky pie in the mouse trap. And then, she put the rest in the garden. Kaitlyn peeked out of the curtain. She held it up to make her way into the living room. "Roses eat pie?" She looked at the plants. "Ahh. Fertilizer Pie. Bón Appetit, flowers."   Chapter 3 Looking at the flowers covered in fertilizer, she realised she was wasting time. The clock said  I:oII which mother taught her was 1:02 am. She decided to catch up on sleep. It was to early to be awake. She ran up the stair to her bedroom. She ockked the door. tHen she realised.. Her bedroom balcony had been open. There were no signs or anyone in in the home. "Oh, it must be the wind" She shrugged . Which was quite reasonable because this wind was stronger than a mountain lion. Particularly tonight.  She put her robe on and made her way to the castle-like balcony. "What a dark night. Starry, beautiful" She lay there, on the balcony. "What a-" *yawn* She fell asleep on the balcony.
