You can hardly breathe.
The sun is so hot.
Where are they taking you?
Teresa and her friends are kidnapped
by child soldiers and marched out into
the African bush. They can hear lions.
Will they survive?
Preface by Grace Akallo
You can smell a storm coming, and Frigate Captain Jean-Pierre Troude wants your guts for garters. The last thing you want to do right now is fall in love. But Midshipman Tom Potts makes your heart beat faster. Does he know who you really are? What if he falls foul of your brother Jim? You don’t think any book could be this enthralling? Just read a few pages and then batten down the hatches.
You can feel the wind in your face and Napoleon breathing down your neck. Suddenly you’re in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence ready to teach Frigate Captain Jean-Pierre Troude a lesson. But what if somebody finds out who you really are? What if you are wounded in action and carried below to the cockpit?
El Jinete Murciélago quiere ser un líder del escuadrón.
Se ofrece de voluntario para montar su murciélago
en la furiosa tempestad para una mision de rescate.
¿Que le espera en el dorso del Mas Allá?
¡Emociones de uñas mordidas!
