9780099490739: Sea Otters Gambolling In The Wild, Wild Surf

Sixteen-year-old Felix is bored and stressed. Stressed about his exam results. Stressed about working for that mad old bat Mrs Pretzel. Stressed about his future. Plus, he's feeling super-guilty about what just happened to Mrs P's spaniel, Vespasian. Which might be why he's just stolen his mother's cash card and booked a flight to Hong Kong. Or it might have something to do with what he just found in the permanent clearance sale at 'The House of Ming'.

Sea Otters Gambolling in the Wild, Wild Surf is the story of where Felix's curiosity takes him; on a journey that challenges his preconceptions about the world, his plans for the future and his relationships with his family.

Will he get home before his little sister discovers what he's up to? What'll happen to Vespasian? Will his mother ground him for the rest of his life? Will he get the passes he needs to get into University? And what's any of this got to do with otters?

Whatever!
