This work takes young readers on adventures to the far corners of the world. In the attic of 27 Fairview Avenue, among the usual unwanted household junk, sits an old captain's sea chest, secured with a large padlock. This chest fascinates young Ben Westerly, and he and his friends determine to open it, sure they will find fabulous treasure within. What they actually find, however, is treasure of a type beyond their wildest dreams, for in delving into the chest's secrets, their adventure has only just begun...From nineteenth century Australia to modern-day Hollywood, the children's secret journeys take them to dangers unexpected and offers marvels unimagined. However, from 1940s London, they very nearly do not return. Fast-paced and enthralling, Ben's amazing exploits in "The Captain's Sea Chest" will delight all 8-11 year olds who have the urge to have adventures in far-away places.
