As a child (and still today, I must confess), I was enchanted by Brian Jacques’ Redwall series. He came and spoke at my elementary school and is just as nice as one would expect him to be. When I saw that Jacques (pronounced Jakes) had written a new book that involved people, I was hesitant: not because I thought it wouldn’t be good, but because I felt like it meant the days of talking animals were over.

I shouldn’t have been skeptical. Castaways of the Flying Dutchman is a great book about a boy and his dog (or, perhaps, a dog and his boy) who are given telepathic powers with one another and immortality following their stint on the legendary Flying Dutchman. They travel through time and aid those around them with various problems. This is a recommended read if you like swashbuckling stories, or any of Jacques’ other books.
