Praise

“In Castaways of the Flying Dutchman, Brian Jacques takes a bold and brilliant creative step.  Using the legend of a never-ending voyage, he enriches, deepens, and gives new meaning to it.  He combines ample measures of suspense, fantasy, and mystery, of poetry and great poignancy, and the emotional impact is powerful and unforgettable.  It’s exciting to see a front-rank author rise to a new challenge-and his readers are the fortunate beneficiaries.” —Lloyd Alexander

“The swashbuckling language brims with color and melodrama; the villains are dastardly and stupid; and buried treasure, mysterious clues, and luscious culinary descriptions (generally involving sweets) keep the pages turning.” —Booklist
 
“Well known for his Redwall books, Jacques here turns his attention to the human world, and his fans will not be disappointed….Ultimately, it doesn’t much matter whether the bumbling thugs sent from London to intimidate the Chapelvale populace are weasels or humans–Jacques’s fans will be tickled by the characters’ goofy slapstick regardless of their genus.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“Sophisticated readers…will come away with images and characters who are impossible to forget.” —School Library Journal
