Mokie and Bik live on a boat with Laddie the dog, Slow the sleepy tortle, and Ruby who sings all day. Dad is on his ship-at-sea, Mum is busy arting, so, underfoot or overboard, the twins have twice as much fun as anyone else. Come aboard!Wendy Orr is the author of many popular novels and picture books, including Nim's Island, Spook's Shack, Peeling the Onion, and Ark in the Park.

Ideal for reading aloud.'Parent and School Today, 1 March 2007'...a whimsical, appealing book...Children will love the endearing made-up language of the twins...partly silly and partly a warm tale of family, but mostly it's just good plain fun.'Reading Time, Vol. 51 No. 1'...interesting and funny read. Enthusiastically illustrated by Beth Norling.'Sunday Age, 1 October 2006
