Reviews

"Remarkable for its delicate use of language and for its watertight descriptions of seafaring . . . The story is engrossing and unpredictable with likeable heroes and charming accomplices . . . It's a measure of the Martins' success with this surprising debut that the cats' triumph feels so credible and, to the formerly sparring brothers, profound." --The New York Times Book Review

"The plot is carefully woven, the vocabulary rich and distinctive, and the characters engaging." --Kirkus Reviews

"The story is well paced with descriptive language that firmly places readers in the midst of dangerous storms, sea battles, and islands full of strange animals . . . Children who like animal fantasies such as Avi's Poppy will find much to enjoy here." --School Library Journal

"Adult author Valerie Martin (Property), writing with her niece Lisa, make their children's book debut with a quaint mix of adventure and legend . . . The story is rich with seafaring vocabulary and nautical adventure." --Publishers Weekly
