Mutiny on the School Ship Bounty by Jon Blake


Mutiny on the School Ship Bounty by Jon Blake

Ever wished that school would just disappear? There's a crisis at Owen Glyn Bowen Primary School - it's gone down a hole in the ground! But it isn't a problem for the headmistress as she arranges for school to continue as usual - on a ship! And so starts an adventure for the staff and pupils upon SS Bounty. But it's not long before Captain Blight takes over the headship and initiates a new curriculum based drill and seamanship, much to the despair of the children. Under the leadership of Ayana Jones they mount a mutiny to overthrow Captain Blight and his accomplice Miss Catsnap. But will they succeed? Or will they make a powerful enemy of nasty Captain Blight? This is a humorous story narrated by Purrpants, a very clever cat.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
