Island of the aunts reading level
When the newly kidnapped assistant caretakers, Minette and Fabio, arrive on the island, all kinds of amazing and wondrous things start happening. Sirens Are Mermaids : Parodied. Gaslighting : A somewhat more benevolent example than most. One day everyone wakes up to this amazing feeling. Ending: A little long, as far as endings go, but ties up most all loose ends and completes the story in a very heartwarming fashion. Facial Composite Failure : The police circulate composite drawings of the aunts, who are wanted for kidnapping. Our Mermaids Are Different : Of the mermaid family, one is a visibly old lady, and the baby is a merboy, who is rather chubby. Never Mess with Granny : Never mess with mermaid granny. Parental Neglect : Minette's parents, towards her. So therefore I loved the fact that Fabio and Minette were so far from my basic hate standards. Advertisement: The Kindnapper : The aunts are well-meaning, and originally intended to only kidnap kids who wanted to get away from their ordinary lives, anyway.

To keep Lambert from throwing a fit every time he sees one of the mystical animals on the island, Fabio lies to him that none of them actually exist and they're all hallucinations he's having as a side effect of the flour used in their food.
Lima Syndrome : The aunts were never malicious, but they do grow fond of the kids and become a bit more realistic about the whole kidnapping business.
I also thought it was rather funny that they so clearly marked themselves as aunts, since their sister Betty got married to a tax inspector no less and had children. The aunts are very kind to the children, give them delicious porridge for breakfast, and do make them work from dawn to dusk, but the children love it. Ending: A little long, as far as endings go, but ties up most all loose ends and completes the story in a very heartwarming fashion.

And that concludes my book review. She is incredibly withdrawn and her voice is still hoarse from crying so much. Technical Review Narrative Pace: It starts out at a moderate pace, the first chapter explaining the situation the aunts are in followed by the next three chapters showing how the aunts are doing on their quest to kidnap children. The story is heart-warming and exciting, with a subtle theme of respect and sensibility.
A bird of the size of a horse. Broken Angel : After getting into an oil spill, the mermaids lose their mermaid-typical beauty.
And that concludes my book review. He makes everyone do good things to the sea.
