THE VOYAGE OF LUCY P. SIMMONS has a lot to recommend it: adventure, a brave young heroine, and a magical house by the sea. The plot takes some twists and turns that will be exciting (and possibly scary) to kids. And, although a "happy ending" seems a foregone conclusion in a book of this type for this age group, there definitely are some surprises.

But some of the thrilling scenes -- the carriage chase, a powerful storm -- are described in confusing detail and can be difficult to follow. It also seems a bit easy for magic to intervene when all seems lost.
