Description

Despised by his Spanish relatives and ignored by his distant grandfather, twelve-year-old orphan Felix Brooke is lonely and unhappy. So when he’s given a parcel with a blood-stained letter from his dead father, it inspires him to track down his long-lost English family. Felix packs his bag, jumps on his trusty mule and heads for the coast and a new life. But his journey across the mountains and over the sea does not prove to be plain sailing – as Felix soon discovers . . .

Publisher Review

I thought this book was one of the best adventure stories I have encountered and a touching yet easy to read book. I would love to read the next in the trilogy and I would recommend it to boys and girls age eight and up for an unpredictable adventure. * Guardian Children's Book Review Team * Joan Aiken's Felix trilogy is definitely the kind of reading material you can never have enough of. It's got everything; adventure of almost every kind you could dream of, friendship, romance, history, travel . . . To me these books are timeless, and every generation needs them. * Bookwitch *
