This book is suitable for readers of ages 9 to 12. This 'Seaquel' to 2004's well-received The Wise Mullet of Cook Bayou finds Ol' Middler embarking on a harrowing journey along the Gulf Coast to find his long lost mullet buddy, Goldie. Ol' Middler's search takes him to the Florida Keys, across the Gulf of Mexico and into the epicentre of a terrible hurricane (Katrina), where he heroically rescues his heartbroken friend Goldie. After a suspenseful escape from flooded New Orleans the two fish friends return safely to Cook Bayou, where Goldie concludes that 'thing is more wondrous than an ever loyal friend'. Illustrated with dramatic photos, the pages of Ol' Middler Saves the Day blend realism and wonder in a manner that fascinates and captivates a child's interest. It is an epic tale of loyalty, loss, the storm of the century, and how a hero was born from a small, muddy bayou that fancy fish scorned.
