Middle-grade adventure readers will love this fresh take on classic pirate tropes. Fans of Percy Jackson and The Chronicles of Egg will enjoy Dean Seaborne's adventures on the sea. 

Dean Seaborne is thrown off his ship by the Pirate King and given one last chance to redeem himself before he meets Davy Jones's locker. He has to spy on the Pirate King's biggest rival, Gentleman Jack Harper, and find the treasure hidden on the mysterious island of Zenhala. 

Once on Zenhala, Dean finds that the inhabitants of the island think he is the lost prince who went missing 13 year ago. In order to fulfill his mission for the Pirate King, Dean undergoes intense and fantastical trials to prove he is the lost prince. But the longer Dean stays on the island, the more he questions his mission.

I am a huge fan of Matt Myklusch. His Jack Blank series is one of my all time favorite MG series. If you've not yet read, I highly recommend that you do. I'm so thrilled he has a new book coming out this year, THE LOST PRINCE. This is the first book in his SEABORNE series. It sounds like a  fantastic read. I'm looking forward to not only featuring this book on Mundie Kids in the coming weeks, but Matt will also be stopping by to visit w/ me about his book. Stay tuned for more details about my The Lost Prince feature. Add this book to your MG TBR shelves. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
