Fish Finelli (Book 1): Seagulls Don't Eat Pickles

Seagulls Don't Eat Pickles: Fish Finelli Book 1 - Erica Farber One of the ALA ARCs I picked up thinking it might be a fun book to have when kids come over. It didn't work for me at all. I found the inclusion of little didactic boxes about Tesla and microwaves and the like to be obtrusive. There's one kid who every time he's mentioned, is eating something. That's one of those things that, done in moderation, helps distinguish a character but done every time ruins a book for me. I liked the boys, though. They were silly and real-sounding a lot of the time.
