The Doldrums - Nicholas Gannon

When Archer B. Helmsley’s grandparents disappear on an iceberg, his overprotective mother, fearing Archer has the Helmsley tendency to explore, confines him to the house where his only companions are the stuffed creatures displayed on all four floors. Wouldn’t you be in The Doldrums (Greenwillow, $17.99) too? Temporary relief arrives in the form of his grandparents’ scarlet trunks, which mysteriously appear on his doorstep and contain binoculars, a bundle of old journals, and a tape recording. But things really start looking up when Archer makes friends with Oliver Glub, the unadventurous boy next door, and Adelaide Belmont, the new girl from Paris with a wooden leg. Nicholas Gannon’s original story with full-color illustrations has the look and feel of a classic children’s book. Ages 9-12
