A fantastic adventure on the high seas and the thrilling sequel to The Mousehunter.
For many years, a curse has condemned Mousebeard to a life forever lived at sea. But after escaping the gallows he is determined to break it - if only to seek revenge on his mortal enemy, Isiah Lovelock. Now fugitives themselves, Emiline and Scratcher take up the pirate's cause. From infiltrating the garrison port of Hamlyn to discovering a lost world of mice, the young mousekeepers will fight old enemies and terrifying battles in their quest to break the curse. And break it they must, because Old Town's power is on the rise and only Mousebeard can stop it.See all Product description

If you liked the first book The Mousehunter then you'll like this even more. The Mousehunter: the curse of Mousebeard was brilliant!!!!!!!!! The story follows on from the first book and has Emiline and Scratcher helping their friend Mousebeard to break the curse, that condemns him to live at sea forever - you also learn just who it was that put the curse on Mousebeard. My favourite new character is Professer lugwidge. Plus there's a new lost world of mice called Norgammon which is brilliant. Another fantastic book by a brilliant author!!!!!!! I can't wait for the next book in the series.

The story continues to follow the mouse keeper Emiline as she sails with the pirate Mousebeard looking for a way to clear her name and stop Isiah Lovelock from his plan of breeding and killing rare Golden mice for profit. The villains are given realistic ambitions and in spite of their goals of dubious morality, they do still seem like people and one can easily see the train of logic they used to arrive where they are. It makes for a wonderfully varying moral palette in shades of grey and I appreciate it immensely.
All the secondary characters undergo a good deal of development and expansion, which is to be hoped for in the second book of a series or trilogy. This book does suffer from the curse of a series though: there's no real ending. Since this seems to be industry standard, I suppose that I'm just going to have to sigh.
As before, teachers looking for thoughtful and entertaining reading material for their classes would do well to consider this book for their charges.
Hope someone makes a movie.
