"Not since Treasure Island have we had such a fast- paced swashbuckling yarn come out of Bristol, and this time the hero's a heroine! With excitement and plot twists a plenty, Robert Louis Stevenson would have been proud. Look out for some ghosts from Bristol's rich maritime past - " Mark Steeds, Secretary - Long John Silver Trust, Bristol "The perfect combination of Treasure Island and Pirates of the Caribbean for young girls - the author captures the spirit and sound of the period as she whisks the reader back in time and immerses them in an era of upheaval and adventure. The characters are richly drawn and the dialogue rings true." Patricia Rockwell, author & publisher "Sail away on a swashbuckling adventure aboard the Bonny Marie with young Billy Baxter - who is not the boy he pretends to be! The Black Banner has it all - pirates, plunder, and the pleasure of a rollocking good read!" Helen Hollick, author of the Sea Witch series
