    What a fantastic adventure! I was riveted from the beginning. What a delightful young boy Wilf is, so full of bright ideas and positive energy. I was carried along on a wave of high excitement from the pretty little middle England village across the high seas to Seville. There's a wealth of characters, all believable and entertaining and it's written in such a pacey yet lyrical style, that you get completely caught up in this world of piratical adventuring, plunder and double-crossing.

I will definitely be recommending this to my class of year 6's! They'll love it!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish - which didn't take too long because once you get started there is no stopping. A real page turner - Wilf and the entire cast of characters made this a totally enjoyable experience. I highly recommend this book.

    This yarn of Captain Tiberius Jericho and Young Wilf the cabin boy begins with the best image I've read since Ground Hog Day. An explosion blows the roof off the Captain's shed: "...the roof [flew] up into the cloudless sky like a huge partridge." Ever startle a partridge? Picture the shed's roof suddenly lifting off and noisily winging it towards the heavens. I wish I was twelve years old again to experience this novel as a boy ... as a cabin boy p'raps. Dandy as a doubloon.

    I think this is a fantastic book! Full of adventure with close calls, yet not too scary. I thoroughly enjoyed reading my copy from Goodreads Giveaways and hope to persuade my younger reader to try reading it.
