KIRKUS REVIEW

From England, a flimsy whimsy about Robin, the youngest of three, who is bullied, not babied, by Jonathan and Miranda. He needs ""something extra"" like ""magic"" but fails to get it from a magic carpet or an amber ring or an ointment. But then there's the shell he finds on the beach which he calls ""The Freedom of the Seas""; he can foretell the weather, learns to swim overnight, and finally saves a captain and a crew in a shipwreck. The pictures, not seen, 64 in black and white, may save this and help it to come true (or off) for other young wishfuls. It seems unlikely though.
