The Elephant Keepers' Children
The setting is the imaginary island of Fino off the coast of Denmark, where the world’s religions live together peacefully. Father is a vicar and Mother is a fine artist. For the second time in the lives of the three siblings, Hans, Tidle and Peter, their very eccentric parents disappear. The youngest, fourteen year old Peter is the narrator. From his precocious view point he describes the weird circumstances and incredible adventures they have finding their parents, while the rest of Denmark is trying to corral them to keep them out of harm’s way. There is a lot of satire, laugh out loud moments and a satisfying ending.
Patron Saint of Lost Dogs
Nick Trout, a veterinarian, writes a delightful story for pet-lovers. Estranged from his father, the vet pathologist Dr. Mills, returns to his hometown after a fourteen year absence. His father's much beloved veterinary practice, which he has left his son, is now debt-ridden and about to be taken over by the bank. Dr. Mills had hoped to sell the business and flee back to his southern retreat, ignoring the past and its memories. Now he’s forced to either give up the business or make an effort to see patients in order to keep it at least temporarily afloat. That might involve getting too close for comfort.
