Reviews

The Great Wave of Tamarind

"Sensory descriptions of imaginary flora, fantastic fauna, and vivid landscapes plus an atmosphere charged with impending danger add to Tamarind's allure. ... This exciting, fast-paced, satisfying finale to the Tamarind trilogy does not disappoint." --Kirkus Reviews

In Aguiar's satisfying finale to her Tamarind trilogy, Penny returns to the magical island seven years after Secrets of Tamarind (2011). . . . This volume works equally well as a standalone and a series conclusion (longtime fans will rejoice at Helix's return). With heartfelt emotion, an exotic setting, and a mix of wilderness survival and fantasy quest, this has something for everyone." --Booklist

Secrets of Tamarind

"This is a great adventure that sets the stage for a third book in the series." --School Library Journal

"In his quest to save everyone, Simon discovers that he is growing up and that although adventure is sweet, family means more. ... Rich descriptions and quirky characters will captivate fantasy genre fans." --Dawna Lisa Buchanan, Children's Literature

The Lost Island of Tamarind:

"All signs point to a sequel--one that readers won't want to miss." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Readers will be drawn into this dangerous, magical world where anything is possible and nothing can be fully explained." --School Library Journal

"The book's magic . . . lies in Aguiar's precise, often lyrical descriptions. A native and resident of Bermuda, she writes with authority about daily life in the tropics....Aguiar uses her knack for realistic details equally well in the magical parts. . . . The Lost Island of Tamarind has a gentle spirit, tempering its dangers with warmth." --The New York Times Book Review
