Ng and his boat the Goblin from a sticky situation and to their delight are recruited as crew members Mother agrees they can go on one condition – they absolutely must not sail out past Beach End Buoy and into the open seaIncludes exclusive content In the 'Backstory' you can test your knowledge of the book and learn all about the. Might be my favorite so far at least in the old fashioned 1930s British Swallow and series in which the setting shifts away from the lake country to the salty coast The Walker children are paired up with a new sea going vessel the GOBLIN owned by a competent young man Jim Brading Things however go terribly wrong and John faces his most challenging commander role yet with help from Susan Titty and Roger As per usual the children are caring of one another cautiously brave competent young sailing explorers and inventive The Walker children's father finally makes than a cameo appearance The relationship of father to children is a comforting one filled with mutual respect that adds a complete dimension to the memorable Walker family Suspenseful Salt water sailing Stayed up much too late reading to learn how this one would all turn out Dense fog Wild winds Night storm with seasick size waves Real dangerNaturally these books have mishaps but never tragedy Whew It's hard not to feel good reading this adventure seriesI do recommend reading the books in the series in order I would not give such a high star rating for this book without considering it as part of the series and a strong part of the series at that

I didn't like this as much as the others in the series so far mostly because there is too much technical sailing jargon and discussion of sandbanks to really grab me as a non sailorBasically the action moves from the Lake District to the east coast Harwich to be exact The Walker children meet a young boat skipper Jim and after their mother has checked his background they're allowed to spend the night on his boat the Goblin as long as they remain in the harbourThe title is a bit of a giveaway and the tale is of what happens when the Walker children without Jim for reasons that only become apparent right at the end of the novel and against their wishes cross the North Sea to HollandReading this now it's really very difficult to shut up the it's PC Gone Mad inner Daily Mail reader in you these days Mrs Walker would have the Police after Jim for being a potential child snatching paedophile they would have been arrested for stealing the boat and as suspected illegal immigrants on arrival in Holland and again on their re arrival in England There's the animal smuggling charge to be levelled against them too The children would probably sue Jim for damages for the trauma they have suffered during the unwanted voyageBut even so It's a ripping yarn and I thoroughly enjoyed it
