Elisabeth Egan…witty and wise…Secrets at Sea is Peck's 33rd novel for children…He has proved himself many times over as a storyteller—and now, definitively, as a humorist. Helena's tale is rife with snappy asides and clever but never heavy-handed mentions of mouse-centric nursery rhymes like "Hickory Dickory Dock." These comic touches blend seamlessly with Peck's moving story, avoiding the buffoonery trap while still remaining accessible to young readers.
