Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A boy and dog trapped aboard the legendary ship, the Flying Dutchman, are sent off on an eternal journey by an avenging angel, roaming the earth throughout the centuries in search of those in need. Their travels lead them to Chapelvale, a sleepy nineteenth century village whose very existence is at stake. Only by discovering the buried secrets and solving the dust-laden riddles of the ancient village can it be saved. This will take the will and wile of all the people — and a very special boy and dog! Brian Jacques turns from Redwall to a very different sort of story, and succeeds admirably.

Review:

"Sophisticated readers...will come away with images and characters who are impossible to forget. School Library Journal (Starred Review)

Review:

"[Jacques] fans will not be disappointed....Ultimately, it doesn't much matter whether the bumbling thugs sent from London to intimidate the Chapelvale populace are weasels or humans — Jacques's fans will be tickled by the characters' goofy slapstick regardless of their genus." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The swashbuckling language brims with color and melodrama; the villains are dastardly and stupid; and buried treasure, mysterious clues, and luscious culinary descriptions (generally involving sweets) keep the pages turning." Booklist

Synopsis:

In 1620, a boy and his dog are rescued from the doomed ship, Flying Dutchman, by an angel who guides them in travelling the world, eternally helping those in great need.
