Review:
Tamo, the pirate's son, takes fellow orphans Maude and Nathan to his home in Madagascar. Maude loves the colorful island with its superstitions, exotic animals, and friendly natives but Nathan is homesick for England. Dangers the children face include sharks, storms, and plundering pirates.

The lyrical language evokes vivid images of Madagascar. This adventure story contains subtle humor and it packed with twists and turns.
