Allan Jones and Gary Chalk have created a magical steampunk world for their illustrated The Six Crowns books. In the Sundered Lands, animals talk, ships fly, and a set of ancient blocks can be used to tell fortunes.
Hedgehogs Trundle Boldoak and Princess Esmerelda and squirrel Jack Nimble continue their quest in Sargasso Skies, the fifth book in the series. To find the Crown of Wood, they’ll have to navigate a treacherous skyreef. And they’ll have to elude Captain Grizzlewald, a hog who leads a band of bloodthirsty pirates and is desperate to find the crowns of the Badger Lords himself.
The Six Crowns books, a funny fantasy-adventure series for tweens, will appeal to fans of the Geronimo Stilton and the Kingdom of Fantasy books.
The adventuring hedgehog Trundle and his companions—energetic princess Esmeralda Lightfoot and wandering minstrel Jack Nimble—have found four of the six legendary Badger Crowns. And now they seek the fifth—the Crown of Wood. Rumor has it the Crown of Wood is in Hammerland, home of the sinister steam moles. But to get there, Trundle and his crew must pass through the deadly skyreef known as Sargasso Skies. It's a graveyard of countless brave, sky-faring vessels. Will the valiant adventurers be able to get through without getting caught by fierce winds and dangerous wreckage? And how will they evade the savage beasts that dwell within the abandoned ships?
