Marama | 13 comments I'm looking for a book that I read about 10 or so years ago. I can't remember it fully, but I'll give as much info as I can.

The story was based around a boy and his brother. The brother could hold his breath really well, it was one of the main features about him.

The two boys go off to find their mother. When they find her they find that she's a scientist whose main focus is genetic modification.

(I'm trying to avoid spoilers, but I think these details will help identify it.)

In her lab, in a preservation jar, they find a human baby covered in feathers, that the mother refers to as her "angel."

Also, I think there was a talking Albatross called Albert Ross.

If anyone can identify it, I'll be really grateful! I found it to be a really interesting read, so I'd love to find it again.
