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.
