"British-born playwright, lyricist, and actor David Cale is an impressive choice as narrator of Karen Hesse's extended sea adventure. When 11-year-old Nicholas Young makes his escape from an abusive butcher in London, he climbs aboard the H.M.S. ENDEAVOR, captained by the legendary James Cook. Nick ultimately becomes a member of the crew on their three-year journey to discover the unknown Southern continent. While the journal format of the novel precludes character voicing, Cale manages a wonderfully consistent and believable Nick. His charming British accent delights while his flawless pacing accentuates Nick's wry humor and frequent incredulity. Highly recommended for family listening. T.B.
