KIRKUS REVIEW

This may not be literature, but it is good adventure material for this age level (third to fifth grade) and much better written than most. The story deals with black market smugglers, hurricane winds and three really vivid children, intelligently characterized by an author who recognizes the fact that children may have genuine character flaws and yet a high level of charm and sweetness...and that family differences and values are integral to the background of boats and fishing in this eastern shore town. Todays pirates are convincingly black marketeers -- and lively adventures of garrulous Chet, shy stubborn Mose and their mettlesome girl companion are credible and exciting.
