Finn has never been on a cruise ship before, much less stowed away on one. He's never impersonated a fairy tale character, sought lost treasure or gotten to know his real dad.

A fun fast-paced romp. Once I started the story I found myself reading "just one more chapter," until, finally I had completed it. Sparkling dialogue, interesting characters and a foreign location blend to produce an unusual adventure. This one is a winner! Stay tuned for Books 2 "Finn's Car,) and Book 3 (Finn's Rocket,) in the trilogy.
