Synopsis

'The third flag – Anna's resplendent dragon on its rippling black background – had been slashed to tatters … What did pirates do anyway? In real life and the twenty-first century?'

In A Ravelled Flag Donny Walker and his Allies – Anna, Xanthe, Maggi and Luke – come dangerously close to finding out. Their adventures take them to semi-derelict docklands, up the deserted and beautiful River Stour and onwards to Britain's most easterly point. This is a winter story, dark and suspense-filled, a gripping sequel to The Salt-Stained Book.

Griff Rhys Jones

'An intense, absorbing read … get on board for a very modern adventure.'
The Evening Standard

"Dark, intense and suspense-filled action and adventure ... and a good dose of wit as well. It's a great read."
Love Reading 4 Kids

"the themes are darker but the page-turning narrative pace is just as strong"
Jibbooms and Bobstays - The Nancy Blackett trust

The second book in the Strong Winds trilogy is more enjoyable than the Salt-Stained Book as some of the first episode's nasty characters are developed as actively conspiring against our heroes.
Otago Daily Times


"With [...]ingenious plotting, suspense-filled writing and a rare warmth towards its characters it delivers its rewards."
The Marine Quarterly

A Ravelled Flag is not a simple book but I'm absolutely certain young readers will find it very rewarding[...] It's exciting and it's deep. Ransome would have loved it.
