Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Good nine year old readers will relish the ‘real book’ feel of Corby Flood: the dust jacket opens out into a map, the chapters are short and each is exciting on its own and the illustrations provide even more detail to the wealth already provided in the text. And the story delivers, too. Corby Flood is a sharp-eyed girl who soon notices that all is not well on the creaky old ship S. S. Euphonia. There’s something sinister in the hold – and she has to find out what it is. Adventure, mystery and an interesting cast, these are the familiar hallmarks of Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell partnership.

SynopsisCorby Flood by Paul Stewart
Corby Flood and her family are about to set sail on the rather ramshackle cruise ship, the S.S. Euphonia. Her boisterous brothers might not have noticed that anything is wrong, but Corby is highly observant and has a lot of time for note-taking and eavesdropping.
