by Mary Higgins Clark
illustrated by Wendell Minor

Thomas loved his summer visits to his grandmother on Cape Cod. He spent hours wondering about sailing ships of the past & imagining their stories. He dreamed of being on a sailing ship himself. One afternoon he finds, deep in the sand, a weathered, old-fashioned belt buckle. When he picks it up, a boy his own age appears who was a cabin boy on a ship called the Monomoy that sailed almost 250 years ago. Suddenly the world of sailing ships is very near as the boy tells his tale

This is a story of mystery and adventure that will transport readers to a time & place beyond their imaginings. The inspired paintings make a time long ago very real


This suspenseful story will keep the readers' curiosity from beginning to end

Interesting enough for an adult; the artwork is exquisite. I would buy this for the art alone

My son loved it & I really enjoyed it, too

An interesting slice of history, told in a fun way (a boy meets the ghost of a cabin boy, who tells him the story of his ship); the illustrations are very well done

It held the interest of my 4 year old granddaughter. I loved the illustrations!

A mix of history & reality, reading this book to a child will be a great journey
