While I can say that the humor in this book could have made it so much better because it was spot on, I also have to say that this book is ridiculous. I really wanted to like it, but hearing that she was part seal kind of messed it up. Then the author threw in a whole bunch of other characters, creatures, and things, etc. There were too many different types of creatures, and some were extremely strange. I had to pause for a moment when I heard about orangutans loading a dishwasher and rock souls or something. Either way, I just couldn't get into this book and I didn't really care about the characters. It was too much, and I didn't enjoy it.
