Product description

From the Author

This book was inspired by my friend and partner who was himself a Skipper's Child. I wrote it after hearing the stories and anecdotes of his childhood in the 1950's and 1960's. The life of commercial skippers and their families are very special and I felt it would be something different to weave these stories into a fictional adventure novel for children of all ages - from 10 - 100!
Praise for this book:
"It made me laugh, cry and hold my breath all at once! A beautifully written book that will appeal to everyone with a sense of adventure and a love of old fashioned story-telling." T Bland, Bedford.
"A great read for all age groups!" M. Mann, Netherlands.

About the Author

Arie hates life on his family's barge, the ''Rival''. All they do is travel on the European waterways. Arie is intensely frustrated with it all. It seems there is nothing for him to do, and no escape, until an unexpected brush with Russian secret agents and a startling stow - away bring him far more excitement than he'd bargained for!
