The Songs of the Sea festival is about to start, but disaster has
struck! The royal musicians will be performing, but all their instruments
have disappeared...

Harper and her friends use her flying umbrella to come to the rescue,
and that very night they start hearing beautiful music coming
from Melody Bay. Will they have the courage to walk along the pitch-black
smugglers' tunnels passing under the sea to find out who
has stolen the instruments?

A captivating adventure story all about friendship, creatures of
the sea and magic.

I loved reading about Harper and her adventure with her friends. Her friend Nate seemed to be very brave. I know that my friends would love to read about Harper and her adventures and I enjoyed it so much that I am going to read about Harper’s other adventures.’

Harper and the Sea of Secrets is a very good book. It is a book of mystery, music and the ocean. The main characters are Harper, a girl of music and can play every instrument, Ferdie, a boy with a heart full of poetry, Nate, a boy who knows every street in every city, Leisel, a girl who has dreams of dancing with pirates, darting with mermaids and is as quiet as a mouse, Smoke, a wolf with golden eyes and has super sonic hearing and Midnight is a cat who is very smart and knows everything about Harper when Harper doesn't know it herself. Harper has a magical Scarlet umbrella which is a magnificent silk umbrella because it can be used as a boat, as a flying machine and as an ordinary umbrella. I loved this book.  <3 :D

I think that this was a great book. I would recommend this book for younger children but personally I think it was a good book. The best part was when the Nate cried "look a sea dragon!" but Harper said that it was a whale; on the picture it looked like a really beautiful sight. When the beardy pirates stole the instruments I was startled. My favourite character was liesel because she is very adventurous and there was a picture of her in a baby basket all curled up. She looked very cosy and I wish I was her all snuggled up like that!

I really enjoyed this book though at first I thought it was going to be too girly for me and maybe other boys. The main character is a girl but there are boys too. The story is really exciting and has lots of fast moving events. I like the fact that there are animals as main characters too. It was also a relaxing soothing book to read as it is set near the sea, and the reading about music played relaxed me. I will definitely be looking for other books by Cerrie. The drawings are really cool too. If you like Enid Blyton's Faraway Tree and Harry Potter you will like this book.

This book is about a girl called Harper, her cat, her three best friends and a pet wolf.  They go on an adventure to rescue some missing instruments to Gull Island.  The story is full of magic and music.  It was brilliant because it was interesting and exciting.  There is a magic umbrella in the story.  This gave me the idea of thinking about where I would go if I had a magic umbrella and the adventures that I would go on.

I liked the pictures of the book and my favourite part was the end of the book because it has a happy ending. My favourite character was Midnight the cat because I love animals. The start of this book made me feel excited. I would recommend this book to my friends because it has a great theme to it. Harper's scarlet umbrella is amazing because it can fly! I love Aunt Sassy's name because it is a very cool name. The only bit that I think is not so good is the bit where the beardy pirates learned to play music!

This book was a good mystery full of secrets. I liked listening to the story to hear all the secrets. This book is good for an adult to read to their children because I liked cosying in to bed and just listening and imagining what is going on. I would have liked it to be longer.
