Synopsis: Narrated in stirring verse that demands to be read aloud, this epic adventure, full of atmospheric line illustrations, will appeal to all children and adults who love a thrilling story, memorably told.

Things happen here in Plymouth in the winter,
And of such things you’d surely never learn.
So take your seat and listen while I tell you
Of Bruno and his ship, The Arctic Tern. . . .

Treason, treachery, and treasure - here is a classic seafaring tale that sweeps across the centuries and sails to different lands, from Spain to the southwest of England. At its heart is Bruno, the skipper of The Arctic Tern, who has been cursed to a life of eternal wandering after succumbing to a moment of greed and betrayal some thousand years ago. Bruno’s quest for release brings him to the court of the King of Spain and into battle with an ancient adversary, the villainous pirate Mad Dog Morgan. Can Bruno and his crew set right the wrongs of the past and present? Will good triumph over evil? Can the captain of The Arctic Tern ever find the redemption that he seeks?

About the Author: Hugh Montgomery was born and brought up in Plymouth, on the south coast of England. "I have always had a love of the sea," he says. An avid diver, he spent most of his youth on or under the waves and was part of the team that salvaged Henry VIII’s flagship the Mary Rose. "It was at this time," he says, "that I met a real modern-day pirate, Bruno, who plundered wrecks from his ship The Arctic Tern." The author began writing THE VOYAGE OF THE ARCTIC TERN as a Christmas present for his young godchildren but didn’t finish it until three years later! After receiving a number of rejections, he decided to publish the book at his own expense. The risk paid off: every single copy was sold, and THE VOYAGE OF THE ARCTIC TERN won the Self-published Book of the Year Award and the Poetry Book of the Year Award 2000. When not writing epic adventure stories, Hugh Montgomery works as a physician and consultant in intensive care at University College London. He also led the group of researchers who discovered the first "gene for human fitness" in 1998.
