This was an unexpected find in my local library. Written and illustrated by Wiley "Non Sequitur" Miller, it features the adventures of an 'ordinary' boy with an extra-ordinary girl who comes from a secret hidden society and has a pet Pteranodon. How can this not be fun?

First told partially in flash-back, the story opens with the boy, Basil recovering in his lighthouse home and then rushing off with Professor McGookin in his submarine to rescue the girl, Louise, lost on the incredible Monkey Isla

Amusingly illustrated by the author, this tells of Basil's incursion onto Monkey Island, with his friend Louise (who knows better). They meet Rathbone, an intelligent monkey who has rebelled against the Monkey King's subservience to the treacherous Von Rottweil. Fortunately, kindly Professor McGookin shows up to help the children save the day. Actually, this reads like the middle chapter in a longer book.

I really enjoy this series. This is the second in the series and you really do need to read them in order to understand the storyline. After Basil's first adventure, he and his friend find themselves on Monkey Island. There is a rebellion going on between the monkey tribes and soon the two friends find themselves caught right in the middle. With tons of action and great illustrations, this series is a great one to see if your reluctant reader will be interested.

The kids and I enjoyed this book, although we probably preferred the first book. We were disappointed to learn that there is not another book in the series. Ella kept correcting me when I pronounced the name Basil as Ba zil, and not like the herb.

I began my career in art illustrating educational films. But my interest was always in print and cartooning, so in 1977 I moved from film in Southern California to work as a staff artist and editorial cartoonist for the Greensboro Daily News and the Greensboro Record (they were the morning and evening papers at the time and have since merged into one).

In 1979 I moved on to the Santa Rosa Press De
