‘This first book [of the series] reflects the sensitivity to environmental issues you’d expect from a writer who recently sailed with his sons to the windiest place on earth.’ ~ Ann Packer, The Listener (NZ) Jan 2013
‘Jon Tucker has written the book which I had always wanted to write but never did. He has done a spanking good job of it too!’ ~ David Bamford, The Arthur Ransome Society, F.S., Feb 2013
‘It is incredibly important to recognise that sometimes kids just want to immerse themselves in a good old-fashioned adventure story. Jon Tucker delivers one with his second book … inspired by true events and places as well as his own life in which he and his wife raised five sons aboard their ketch … An engrossing romp of a read which you don’t have to be young to enjoy.’ ~ Dani Colvin, Sunday Tasmanian
