The House at Hoot Pen
by Pat M. Jang
Their parents are somewhere else. Uncle Houston is away at sea. Delphinia, Hector, their little brother Horatio and their shy cousin Addie, who doesn't know any of these people, travel to Uncle Houston's lonely house on the Hoot Peninsula for a holiday at the edge of the ocean with Aunts Cora, Ivy and Molly. Hatch, the aunts' steadfast watchdog, is guarding the house at Hoot Pen.
