About this title

Synopsis:

My name is Primrose Squarp. I am eleven years old. I have hair, the colour of carrots in apricot glaze (recipe to follow), skin fair and clear where it isn't freckled, and eyes like summer storms. Primrose's parents are lost at sea. Somewhere, she knows they're together - on an island, rescued by a ship, perhaps in the belly of a whale. If they'd drowned, she would know. The other inhabitants of Coal Harbour want Primrose to stop being stubborn and admit they're gone for good. Primrose only finds refuge at the town restaurant, where Miss Bowzer serves everything on a waffle. Not just syrup and jam, but lasagne, fish and chips - at The Girl on a Red Swing, even waffles come on a waffle. And sodo good jokes and sage advice, in this quirky novel filled with eccentric characters and bittersweet humour.

Review:

"In [Polly Horvath's] capable hands the dilemma of Primrose Squarp is revealed with hilarity and buoyant good nature . . . Subtlety and slapstick is a challenging combination; Horvath pulls it off beautifully."-- Starred, "The Horn Book
""The story is full of subtle humor and wisdom, presented through the eyes of a uniquely appealing young protagonist."-- "School Library Journal
"Hilariously puckish."-- Starred," Publishers Weekly

"In [Horvath's] capable hands the dilemma of Primrose Squarp is revealed with hilarity and buoyant good nature. . . . Subtlety and slapstick is a challenging combination; Horvath pulls it off beautifully."--"The Horn Book Magazine," Starred Review
"Horvath delivers another hilariously puckish read with this tale of a (possibly) orphaned girl from a small Canadian fishing village. . . . A laugh-out-loud pleasure from beginning to triumphant end."--"Publishers Weekly," Starred Review
"The story is full of subtle humor and wisdom, presented through the eyes of a uniquely appealing young protagonist."--"School Library Journal"
." . . a deeply touching novel about irrational faith."--"Orlando Sentinel""" "Delightful. Hilarious. Entertaining. Insightful. These adjectives don't even begin to describe a novel I simply couldn't put down. . . . You'll love it."--"The Syracuse Post-Standard"
