I put the bundle at my feet, and my grandfather cried, 'Now another; quick, my lads!'

This is a lovely story, fast moving and full of adventure. Told from the vantage point of a young boy, it captures the imagination from the beginning and keeps you reading in one sitting until the surprising ending. I read it in an hour and still today I see those sea storms raging before my eyes. This would make a great gift for a child or a read-aloud book for the children's bedtime.
