Baker, Kage -- The Hotel Under the Sand

A children's story; has the air of "the story the author made up for some actual kids", rather than an attempt to enter the Harry Potter sweepstakes. A girl is shipwrecked and discovers a buried hotel, with attendant ghosts, pirates, magic, etc, etc. Sweet in a (I swear) completely unironical way. The cook was awesome.
