When Ravian's father doesn't return home from sea for his son's birthday, Ravian is certain he must be in danger. Hearing tales of a cursed ship that captures fishermen, Ravian goes in search of his father accompanied by his only friend Marvin the seagull. Before long, the pair find themselves trapped on the ship with a kindly boy and a bad-tempered pirate for company. The ensuing voyage is beset with battles with giant squid and fierce storms, and Ravian despairs of ever finding his father. Featuring stunning illustrations by acclaimed illustrator Karl James Mountford.
It's been a while since I did one of these, but I quite like the challenge of giving my last 10 books a one-word review, and since it's Wyrd and Wonder I will be focusing on my latest fantasy reads (though that's mostly business as usual).
It's the end of April, which means only one thing... [insert gif here] It's gonna be May! And with May comes the joy of Wyrd & Wonder! But more on that tomorrow... For now I'm going to be looking back on April and how I somehow managed to read 15 books in one month, including my current Book of the Year.
