Neversink, by Barry Wolverton

17 Jul

Do you know what kind of animal this is?

I certainly hope you didn’t say that it is a PENGUIN because it is a PUFFIN! 🙂

The hero of Neversink is a puffin named Lockley. If you are thinking that this puffin doesn’t look very heroic, you’d be correct. Most puffins in Neversink are quiet, go-with-the-flow type birds, even when they are threatened by the owls from a neighboring island. Lockley, though, is different. He even wants to soar, and his two best friends are a walrus and a hummingbird!

Can Lockley save the puffins’ home? Can he protect his wife, Lucy, and their egg? Can he be the hero Neversink needs?

This is the perfect summer read because it takes place near the Arctic Circle, where it’s very cold. If you are looking for a frosty, snowy treat, this is the perfect Book Snack for YOU!

      Hi Kyle! I’m so glad you liked it! It is one of my favorite books! Thanks for stopping by BookSnacks! How is the junior high so far? 🙂

      Just so you know, the author is actually Gary Schmidt – Lincoln Hoppe reads the audiobook version. 🙂
