I bought this at the request of my brother for his birthday, who is a great fan. He thoroughly enjoyed it and was very pleased. I was a little annoyed that it took a while to arrive as I hadn't realised it was a US import.
I purchased this book for my daughter. She is enthralled by the deep sea world of Ingo and the adventures contained within it. It is very imaginative and easy to read. It is the perfect girl's tale - my daughter is 10. She and her friends discuss events as they unfold. I would recommend this and the other tales relating to it by the same author, such as 'Tideknot'.
