Twelve year old Shipwreck, Cabin Boy on the The Giant Rat of Sumatra, longs for dry land and safety. But the man who rescued him from the sea is a notorious pirate who has no plans for a quite life. A terrific and terrifying swashbuckling adventure.

Treachery, adventure, bandits, romance and pirates galore! An irresistible novel for anyone who loved Pirates of the Caribbean!

About the Author

As a children's book author Sid Fleischman feels a special obligation to his readers. "The books we enjoy as children stay with us forever -- they have a special impact. Paragraph after paragraph and page after page, the author must deliver his or her best work." With almost 60 books to his credit, some of which have been made into motion pictures, Sid Fleischman can be assured that his work will make a special impact.

Sid Fleischman writes his books at a huge table cluttered with projects: story ideas, library books, research, letters, notes, pens, pencils, and a computer. He lives in an old-fashioned, two-story house full of creaks and character, and enjoys hearing the sound of the nearby Pacific Ocean. He has always lived by the ocean and now lives in Santa Monica, California.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
