Additional Notes

From The Publisher*It's 1860 in New York City. When twelve-year-old twins Alexander and Cleopatra's father disappears, they join the Black Hook Gang and are caught by the police pulling off a heist. They agree to reveal the identity of the gang in exchange for tickets to New Orleans. But once there, Alex is tricked into working on a ship that is heading for San Francisco via Cape Horn. Cleo stows away on a steamer to New Granada, where she hopes to catch a train to San Francisco to find her brother. Neither Alex nor Cleo realizes the real danger they are in-they are being followed by pirates who think they hold the key to treasure. How they outwit the pirates and find each other makes for a fast-paced, breathtaking adventure. A Margaret Ferguson Book
Review Quote*Compass South : "Full of gumption and spark, sword fights, lost treasure, and derring-do. A must for everyone who loves adventure!" -Scott Westerfeld Hope Larson's graphic novel adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time : "Know somebody who hasn't met Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who or Mrs Which? Larson's colorful panels bring Madeleine L'Engle's brilliant time-travel favorite to life in an exciting new way. This is page-turning eye candy of the highest order." -James Patterson "This adaptation is fabulous for presenting a fresh vision to those familiar with the original, but it's so true to the story's soul that even those who've never read it will come away with a genuine understanding of L'Engle's ideas and heart." - Booklist, starred review "The memorable story of Meg Murry, Charles Wallace Murry, and Calvin O'Keefe's adventure across space and time is conveyed with all the intellectual and emotional impact of the original novel." - The Bulletin "Larson has remained true to the story, preserving the original chapter format and retaining L'Engle's voice. Black-and-white artwork is accented with blue, echoing the original cover color." - School Library Journal
