Whales on Stilts! by M.T. Anderson

Lily's father doesn't know why Lily and her friends Katie and Jasper are so interested in his job - he has a perfectly regular job at a perfectly regular place that makes stilts and other accessories for whales. Lily discovers that her father's boss has plans for a whale invasion - and she and her friends are the only ones who can stop it! But will they be able to figure out how to stop them in time to save the world?

I found this to be a delightful little book. The wordplay is clever and there are funny little additions throughout the book. It's a fun book for kids who like action, a creative book for kids who like science, and a great story about the importance of being yourself and staring in your own story.

Find it at IndieBound.
