- "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...."
Written entirely in vibrant verse, this story chronicles the adventures of Bruno as he sails through the ages, trying to break a curse wrought of greed and betrayal. Join him and his crew: the steadfast and gentlehearted Adrian; Lord Hunter, a man of honor and virtue; Doctor Edge, a brilliant and learned physician; and Bruno's eternally faithful canine companion, Daisy. Sail with them to the courts of Spain, where sweet words and poisoned deeds are set to kill the king; across the vastness of the ocean, hunting down Mad Dog Morgan, a pirate that has darkened both Bruno and Hunter's pasts; and as at long last, they must find a fortune to give away to break the last of Bruno's curse.
