Nim at Sea

Had a few days in sunny Santa Monica two weeks ago, staying right on the beach in the Hotel California. What a treat!

Of course the best part of a holiday is the people, so it was great to spend some time with my friend Linda, who is also my webmaster (and who even, in between walks and chats, showed me how she could reorganize things on the site – she claimed it was easy, though it didn’t look it to me)

And, very excitingly, there were also lunches and meetings… I’m not sure exactly what I can say yet, but, to everyone who’s asked about a movie from Nim at Sea to follow Nim’s Island: cross your fingers, and with a bit of luck there’ll be some news soon.


  1. Lucas :) Wendy,

    I write here to thank you for the wonderful experience that you made me go. I watched the movie Nim's Island and found it simply wonderful, but it was left to the side when I read the book that originated the story, simply an adventure that makes us leave the house and act as a hero to arrive on an island known!

    Unfortunately, my country has not yet reached the continuation of Nim's Island (aka, the book only came because of the movie), so we hope to continue to happen film and the book gets here, and hers other books.
