Description

*"A contemporary tall tale fueled by the characters' genuine caring and heart. Best read one-on-one to feast on the clever cartoon artwork."--School Library Journal, starred review

*"This is comforting fare for children, especially those who themselves have been cast adrift, and sensitive readers in more secure situations may even spare some sympathy for Little Amy."--Booklist, starred review

*"Stead never takes Sadie's campaign for virtue too seriously, yet her shining sense of justice lingers long after the silliness subsides."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

*"Readers who are looking for more moxie in their lives will love this absurd adventure."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Throughout, Cordell's style is reminiscent of Quentin Blake's work, with comically perilous seafaring scenes that recall the Miss Armitage picture books. Meanwhile, Stead's text contains echoes of Dahl's writing, with moments of dark humor, a satisfying comeuppance for Little Amy Scott, and a surfeit of heart in the child heroes' rescue of lost Ellsworth."--Horn Book
