Exciting, set in exotic location, 8 Jun. 2009
I got a copy of this for my niece, who is tired of 'magic & wizard' books, then couldn't resist reading it myself (we bond over books).
I really appreciated the authenticity of the local details about Sea Gypsies and modern day piracy - the setting is quite unlike any I've found before in a children's book.
Hanna and Ned are very real, normal kids who find themselves in the midst of an amazing adventure. Having got to like them in this book, I can't wait for a follow up.
