The Flying Dutchman! The legend of the wind-tattered ghost ship and its mad sea captain, cursed to sail forever, has been passed down throughout the centuries. But what of the boy and his dog who are trapped on board that ship? Thus begins one of the mightiest of Brian Jacques' stories, as boy and dog set off on an eternal journey, braving icy winds and waves to arrive on strange shores, and explore new places and times, incuding Chapelville, a sleepy Victorian town, replete with a bully and a mystery to solve.

Brian Jacques takes a break from his successful Redwall series to bring his young fans The Castaways of the Flying Dutchman.
Filled with passion, drama and salty images of the high seas, this unusual and deeply satisfying story follows the adventures of a young Mute boy, Neb, and his faithful talking Labrador (yes, really, a talking Labrador) who together survive the destruction of the the doomed ship The Flying Dutchman. Destined to wander the earth together for all eternity they wander the world, helping people in trouble as they brave the elements, eventually stumbling across a nineteenth century village on the verge of desolation and in desperate need of salvation...
The Castaways of the Flying Dutchman is a fantastic, almost old-fashioned story, fuelled by Jacques' descriptive, lyrical prose and his colour-filled imagination. After 13 Redwall books, this is a major departure for this fine author, but he more than pulls it off. His total involvement and belief in his characters shines through on every page, and, as ever, he manages to cleverly combine the ordinary with a mystical and extraordinary element that draws the reader into the very heart of the story.
Readers who have previously relished Redwall will love this excellent, spirited novel And readers who just enjoy a really good book will be equally as delighted.--Age 9 and over --Susan Harrison.About the Author:
