Description

New York Times bestselling author Brian Jacques tells a haunting tale at sea from The Castaways of the Flying Dutchman series! Ben and his Labrador, Ned, castaways from the legendary ghost ship Flying Dutchman, swore never go to sea again-but a mishap in South America lands them aboard a French pirate ship with not one, but two villainous sea captains in pursuit. To make matters worse, Ben is still haunted by visions of Captain Vanderdecken, whose ghost seeks vengeance on the former cabin boy. And that is only the beginning of their adventures! "Almost nonstop action."--School Libray Journal "Fairly bursts at the seams with exciting escapades, exotic locations, poems, shanties, treachery and derring-do."--Publishers Weekly
