Cordelia is accused of treason. As the guards close in, she must flee London at once. With her father, Prospero, and friends Sam and Goose, Cordelia sets sail on her family’s ship, Little Bear, for the adventure of a lifetime.

They’re determined to solve the mystery of a missing girl, and to clear Cordelia’s name once and for all. But soon they are in the dangerous territory of a band of legendary pirates: the Troublemakers, captained by a fierce and unstoppable pirate queen… A breathtaking new adventure from bestselling author of The Hatmakers and The Mapmakers, Tamzin Merchant, featuring beautiful illustrations by Paola Escobar.
