What did you like about the book? I enjoyed the complimentary characters of Wolfie and Fly, creating a fun yin/yang relationship between two unlikely people. Wolfie’s scientific aloofness is challenged by Fly’s creative imagination as they create a whimsical adventure with a refrigerator box submarine and a toaster pirate ship. They join forces, surviving their first adventure together in an unlikely water main break that sparks a very fun story. I hope to read more of their future adventures!
