Craig Moodie's finely crafted adventure novel tells the story of twelve-year-old Finn, who stows away to search for his lost father and brothers. It's a journey that brings storms, shipwreck, tense encounters with the inhabitants of an unexplored continent and a coming of age for Finn, who will in the end, face his father as a young man and a Viking. Dramatic and beautifully told, The Sea Singer is a first-rate literary sea story.

The book cover art was impressive and the blurb for this story seemed promising. I decided to take a chance and buy this book on a hunch that it might perhaps be incredible. It was. This middle grade historical book will hold the attention of young readers and will take them on a fantastic adventure with twelve-year-old Finn as he bravely embarks on an unpredictable journey to find his father, explorer Olaf Farseeker.
