Read full description of the books:
I read this book in elementary school, and I remember it being one of the few required-reading books that I actually enjoyed.
Side rant - I have such a love/hate relationship with required reading. On the outside, I like the idea of timeless classics and intriguing reads being read by students who'd otherwise would never have heard of them. However, while I was in school, I loathed such assignments with a passion. They always got in the way of the books I actually wanted to read. End rant.
Anyways, like I was saying, I liked this book. It was a great adventure novel with a very active voice (at least it felt that way at the time) and seem to come alive. It was really my first historical fiction novel, and it gave me more than a few moments of "Oh what's going to happen!?"
I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend this book to anyone, but I definitely enjoyed it none-the-less.

Read information about the authorAs a children's book author Sid Fleischman felt a special obligation to his readers. "The books we enjoy as children stay with us forever -- they have a special impact. Paragraph after paragraph and page after page, the author must deliver his or her best work." With almost 60 books to his credit, some of which have been made into motion pictures, Sid Fleischman can be assured that his work will make a special impact.
Sid Fleischman wrote his books at a huge table cluttered with projects: story ideas, library books, research, letters, notes, pens, pencils, and a computer. He lived in an old-fashioned, two-story house full of creaks and character, and enjoys hearing the sound of the nearby Pacific Ocean.
Fleischman passed away after a battle with cancer on March 17, 2010, the day after his ninetieth birthday.
He was the father of Newbery Medal winning writer and poet Paul Fleischman, author of Joyful Noise; they are the only father and son to receive Newbery awards.
