1st ed.
Thirteen-year-old twins Marty and Grace O'Hara's globe-trotting parents disappeared while on assignment for a nature magazine, and now they're living with their uncle Wolfe, a scientist fascinated by cryptids -- creatures that appear in myths and folktales but haven't been proven to exist, like Sasquatch and the Loch Ness Monster. Uncle Wolfe is planning an expedition to New Zealand, and he doesn't really have room for two kids on his crew, despite the fact that he's rented a huge (and possibly haunted) freighter for the trip. But Marty and Grace will do anything to see the Kraken, the gigantic squid that has terrified sailors for centuries! Unfortunately, someone on board the ship is determined to sabotage their mission and if they're not careful, Marty and Grace just might become the saboteur's next victims. Roland Smith brings his trademark flair for action, adventure, and exciting storytelling to his Scholastic debut and it's sure to leave young readers clamoring for more!
