Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2013 With all the adventure and humour of Percy Jackson and the swashbuckling thrills of treasure island, no boy or girl for that matter will fail to enjoy this, the first in a planned trilogy featuring Egg. 13 year old Egg lives a pretty grim existence with his family on an island with nothing much going for it until that is he meets Millicent, a feisty girl who lives on nearby Sunrise island. But life for Egg is always a rollercoaster
and this rip-roaring rollicking and fast-paced read should satisfy any young reader looking for pirate adventure.

Synopsis

Chronicles of Egg: Deadweather and Sunrise by Geoff Rodkey

Deadweather, a sweaty little pirate-infested island, is home to Egg, thirteen years old and prey to a pair of cruel and stupid older siblings. But when Egg's family disappears in a freak accident, he finds himself living on Sunrise island with the glamorous Pembroke family and their feisty daughter Millicent. Finally, life seems perfect. Until someone tries to throw him off a cliff. Suddenly, Egg is lost in a world of cut-throat pirates and powerful villains. Only Millicent - and a one-handed, possibly deranged cabin boy - can help him as he hurtles into the deadliest adventure of his life...
