Ginger is fed up with life on dry land. One morning, Charlotte and Tim wake to find a note saying he's run away to the high seas. They set off to find him, but with no money, the only way they can do it is to sign on with a ship's crew. A terrible fog surrounds their ship with disastrous results - but the adventure is just beginning! Ardizzone's witty prose and illustrations form a lively portrait of the comical, but always exciting, escapades.
