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?
A great read. the story of Ben and Ned the boy and his dog who where the only pure souls cast off the cursed ship "The flying Dutchman" It follows thier adventures from far south america to the london countryside.
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.
Lauri F. reviewed Castaways of the Flying Dutchman on
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.
