Review published on November 15, 2017.
Now, I know I am in my fifties, but I loved this book! It took me straight back to my childhood and Enid Blyton’s Adventure stories.
Jack is an orphaned boy in the 1800s. He lives with his aunt Constance, but his mischief and naughtiness are driving her to distraction, so in a fit of temper, she tells her brother, Jack’s uncle Edmund, that he must look after the boy. For Jack, this is the best thing ever, as he now gets to travel to India, “On a boat”.
Children and adults alike will love Jack. His sunny outlook on life is one that warms the heart. You will giggle and smile all the way through this fun and exciting adventure. It is a must read for all children, whether they are aged 7+ or 75+.
Angie Rhodes 5/5
