Kids (and many parents) will find plenty to love as the exciting Expeditioners series continues. Appealing characters! Undersea adventure! Pirates! Exotic creatures! Unimagined perils! Ethical quandaries! Also, unrequited love. Author S.S. Taylor tells a lively, heartfelt tale in the voice of Kit. And Katherine Roy's illustrations capture the characters' personalities and surroundings as they pursue their quest.

With much of the adventure taking place under the sea amid gorgeous locations and colorful creatures, there's more than a hint of other 19th-century adventure tales. Readers may want to explore those after reading this, which is considerably more accessible to 21st-century readers.
