I was super excited to receive this middle-grade fantasy story as it has been years when I read my last middle-grade novel and as icing on cake was the Pirate theme. At the same time, I also thought that being a book targeted for the younger audience it might not be able to keep me interested but I really wanted to have a change so I took the plunge.
Man! I am so happy that I decided to read this one. It is fabulous. It kept me hooked from first chapter where we meet the Young but Orphan Christopher who is forming a plan to break free of his pathetic orphanage and have his own life. But then those 'bad people' catch him and treat him as a slave while telling others that he is their relative.
Worry not our Christopher is not alone, now we are introduced to the second most important character of the story - a human guide Leo and this hero is not a human or a big animal but a wee mouse. You Surprised? I was! and as the story progress we will get more surprises.
The entire book is written so well that there is never a dull moment and I really liked how author inserted little but important life lessons throughout the book without sounding out of the place or forced. We have smart and intelligent kid characters who will be guiding the adults in problem.
I can't wait to read this story to my little sisters the next time we meet. I am sure they are going to like this one.
The kid in me is super satisfied with this one so I am going to rate it
