Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4–6—Emiline and her friends are back in this sequel to The Mousehunter (Little, Brown, 2009), and familiarity with that book will better acquaint readers with the characters and the world they inhabit. Having escaped execution in Old Town at the hands of detestable mouse collector Isiah Lovelock, the new crew of the Silver Shark is determined to stop Lovelock's latest scheme, but first must find a way to free the pirate captain Mousebeard from the curse that prevents him from setting foot on land. Their quest leads them in search of the mythical island of Norgammon, and they are joined by Indigo, a fellow mousekeeper also on the run from the Old Town Guard. Action and adventure abound as plucky Emiline once again takes to the high seas. As with the first book, chapters are interspersed with illustrated entries from the Mousekeeper's Almanac where readers encounter everything from the Slime-toothed Fang Mouse to the Northern Musical Mouse. While some of these mice feature in the story, more often they serve to fill out the imaginative world that Milway has created. Some readers may be disappointed that more time isn't spent exploring the mysteries found on Norgammon; others will simply be anxious to see how the trilogy ends.—Amanda Raklovits, Champaign Public Library, IL

From Booklist

Isiah Lovelock is rising in power, has captured Old Town, and is secretly breeding mice to fund his coffers and do his dirty work. The only hope is freeing the fearsome Captain Mousebeard from a curse that ties him to the water. This sequel to The Mousehunter (2009) follows the adventures of Emiline, Algernon, and Drewshank as they make new friends and discover an unknown island populated by Methuselah Mice. This rousing romp is reminiscent of the early Redwall books with its frequent vivid battles, and although not as intricately developed, it will appeal to the same readership. Grades 4-7. --Melissa Moore

Format: Kindle Edition
This book is a face-paced adventure utilizing the imagination to create a world where mice are friends and are more than simple mice. This is a combination of pirate adventure, a great treasure hunt and a constant battle of good versus evil. The pace of the book is quick, and never with a good stopping place. The characters are personable, understandable, and sometimes have surprising quirks. The story was a bit hard to get into for an adult who is not as imaginative as children but the descriptions and details (and the few pictures) help even those with limited imaginations picture the scenes and action. The novel is adventurous, humorous and entertaining throughout the book. Wonderful suggestion for 4th grade students up to 6th or 7th. As a teacher of 5th grade, I will be suggesting this book to my students when we do our fifth grade book reports on fiction and/or fantasy titles.
