Review by Catherine:

This is an adventure book that would interest middle primary school aged boy readers. The story is based around pirates recruiting children for a scheme that is revealed as the book progresses. The central character Fergus is also searching to find out what happened to his father, who disappeared before Fergus was born. There is a lot of use of idiosyncratic language for character names. The story seems a bit longwinded at the start but becomes more interesting and faster moving as it progresses.
