Book one of the new Chronicles of the Black Tulip series. This is the cutest kids chapter book! We are introduced to Bren Owen who is unhappy with the life he is forced to live, and dreams of sailing away on a ship one day. He should be careful what he wishes for because once he leaves the adventure never seems to stop until we are left with a cliff hanger at the end. I look forward to the next book in the series to see what happens next. It gets 4/5 stars.
