The Island of Thieves
Andersen Press(July 2011)
Buried treasure. Ruthless gangsters. An ancient clue . . .
"Our Captayne took the pinnace ashore and I went with hym and six men also, who were sworne by God to be secret in al they saw. Here we buried five chests filled with gold."
Tom Trelawney was looking for excitement. Now he's found it. With his eccentric uncle Harvey, he's travelling to South America on a quest for hidden gold. But Harvey has some dangerous enemies and they want the treasure too. Who will be the first to uncover the secrets of the mysterious island?
'A thrilling adventure.' -- Guardian
'One of the best children's adventure stories of the year. The pace is breakneck, though there's always time for humour. For many this will be a read-at-one-sitting book. Readers will end THE ISLAND OF THIEVES knowing a great deal more about Drake and his adventure, without even noticing how much they have learnt, and more than likely inspired to find out more still. It's refreshing to read such a clever and enjoyable honest-to-goodness adventure story. Let's hope there are more escapades to come for Tom and Uncle Harvey.' -- Books for Keeps
