Book Overview
A New York Times bestseller Get ready for a breathtaking journey in Compass South, a gorgeous graphic novel for middle-grade readers, written by Hope Larson and illustrated by Rebecca Mock. It's 1860 in New York City. When 12-year-old twins Alexander and Cleopatra's father disappears, they join the Black Hook Gang and are caught by the police pulling off a heist. They agree to reveal the identity of the gang in exchange for tickets to New Orleans. But once there, Alex is shanghaied to work on a ship that is heading for San Francisco via Cape Horn. Cleo stows away on a steamer to New Granada where she hopes to catch a train to San Francisco to find her brother. Neither Alexander nor Cleo realizes the real danger they are in-they are being followed by pirates who think they hold the key to treasure. How they outwit the pirates and find each other makes for a fast-paced, stunning adventure. Larson, best known for her graphic novel adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time , weaves a wonderful, vivid story, assisted beautifully by Mock s illustrations, which take the twins from murky back alleys to bright and vibrant ocean scenes...A charming choice for elementary and middle school library graphic novel collections. School Library Journal, starred review Captures all the rollicking action of a Robert Louis Stevenson type sea adventure. ?The Horn Book
