After being shanghaied aboard the bark Sindia and surviving a shipwreck on the New Jersey Shore, a twelve-year old Japanese boy finds himself thousands of miles from his home and family -- alone on the bustling docks of New York City. The year is 1901, and Takashi has made his way to New York's South Street Seaport, determined to find passage home. Our resilient young hero's adventure continues in this sequel to Takashi s Voyage. Set in a changing world -- the end of the age of tall ships -- Takashi becomes the cabin boy on the Astral, and begins another voyage, this one hopefully taking him home at last. The book includes a nautical glossary, a cookie recipe, and an author's note about the difference between fact and fiction in a historical novel.

About the Author:

Lucinda Hathaway (''Cinda'' to her friends) has traveled all over the world, mostly by ship. She lives, with her husband Jack, in Longboat Key, Florida -- a quiet island in the Gulf of Mexico. She had previously lived on another island, Ocean City, New Jersey, and there she became intrigued with the Sindia, a steel bark that ran aground in 1901 and became the inspiration for her first book, Takashi's Voyage. Her family has vacationed in Maine for almost forty years, so it was natural for her to set this sequel on a Maine Downeaster. She can often be found sailing her sloop Eventide. Cinda is happy to share her love of the sea and our natural world with an audience of children eager to learn, and she regularly visits schools to share all of Takashi's stories.

Review:

The reader can smell the fish at the Fulton Fish Market, or see the newly built Brooklyn Bridge and feel the pride the boy from Maine experiences because boats like his father's transported the granite from Maine to build it.... Other touches -- the mail exchange at sea and ''crossing the line'' -- add depth to this sweet book.... Enchanting. --The Beachcomber

''Lucinda Hathaway has done it again. She has spun an intriguing tale combining a seafaring Maine family and the romance of the sea and ships, with accurate historic detail.'' --Captain Dan Pease, former owner of the schooner Lewis R. French, Camden, Maine

''Revel in the billowing sails, the salt spray and the surge of a moving deck! This seafaring tale is filled with challenge and discovery. 'Round the World rings with authenticity.'' --Frank Remkiewicz, author; illustrator of the ''Horrible Harry'' and ''Froggy'' series --(advance reader reviews)

''Weeks after reading the story of Takashi's predicament and being introduced into the lives of the friends who help him get back to Kobe, the sensations evoked by his richly detailed adventure will linger.'' --Tania Aebi, first American woman and youngest person to sail around the world; author of ''Maiden Voyage''
