A Review of Shipwrecked! by Nick Hazlewood:
“Mutiny, murder, slavery and adventure on the high seas – and it's all true. What more could a young reader want? The story of the disastrous voyage of HMS Wager, and its rounding of Cape Horn in 1740, has been told before, but not in a way quite so accessible for kids. Through the eyes of the young midshipman Isaac Morris, Alexandra Pratt takes us straight to the heart of a terrifying yet thrilling tale.”
Reviews for Alexandra’s other books for younger readers:
"...a simple but fast paced narrative that fulfils its promise of a reality check for cyber savvy children, and should keep them both engaged and enthralled. The Day The Island Exploded Reviewed in Geographical Magazine.
“I bought this book for my 12 year old nephew... Young Ben loved the drama of what is essentially an 'attempt to escape' story and I loved the fact that there is so much geographical stuff contained within. Researching around, I also heard it was based on a true story which makes it all the more remarkable. In short, a thumping quick read and a surprising story; strongly recommended.” A review of The Day The Island Exploded by John Oribton
