The Flying Dutchman! The legend of the wind-tattered ghost ship and its mad sea captain, cursed to sail the seas forever, has been passed down through the centuries. But what of the boy and his dog who were trapped aboard that ship? What was to become of them?

Characteristic of Brian Jacques, there are new puzzles to be solved and new friends to help. He masterfully weaves and old legend with a charming new tale.

In the same tradition as his Redwall series, Brian Jaques weaves a fasinating tale of the triumph of good over evil. The story contains many memorable characters, especially the boy and his faithful dog bound together in the search for truth and justice. Redwall fans will enjoy the lively details about sea life and the use of riddles to lead the heroes to the means to save those they love. Just as Martin the Warrior intervenes in dreams of Redwall creatures, so a Heavenly being provides guidance and protection for the boy and his companion in their travels.

Entertaining, although not in the same vein as Redwall. The beginning of the story is rather graphic and then becomes enjoyable. I was hoping to read it to my children, but they aren't ready for this type of book yet.

Not the usual Redwall story.
