Magical worlds and incredible creatures fill the pages of this action-packed adventure in the Map to Everywhere series!

Fearless adventurers Marrill and Fin have just barely stopped the Iron Tide and the evil wizard Serth from destroying the Pirate Stream. Now they're on a mission to find Fin's missing mother, but before they can blink, Fin's people have found him--and they're not as friendly as he'd hoped. In fact, they're after a powerful wish orb that could resurrect the debilitating Iron Tide and end the world as we know it. Without their captain Coll and wizard friend Ardent to guide them, are Marrill and Fin brave enough to take on the magic (and evil) of the Pirate Stream on their own? Find out in this exhilarating third book that raises the stakes to new heights!

About the author

Husband and wife Carrie Ryan and John Parke Davis have been in love with each other's writing (and with each other) since meeting in law school a decade ago. Carrie is the New York Times bestselling author of the critically acclaimed and multi-award-winning Forest of Hands and Teeth series, which is based on a world she and JP created together. She is also the author of Daughter of Deep Silence and Infinity Ring: Divide and Conquer, and the editor of Foretold: 14 Tales of Prophecy and Prediction. JP is the First Assistant Federal Defender for the Western District of North Carolina, as well as a published author of short fiction. Although they've been important parts of each other's writing for years, the Map to Everywhere series is their first full collaboration. They live in Charlotte, North Carolina, and they invite you to visit their website at TheMaptoEverywhere.com.

The Pirate Ship is an exciting fantasy adventure story for young readers, inspired by the pirate ship in the Princess of Wales’ Memorial Playground in Kensington. Corin and Carly play on their favourite pirate ship, then Corin climbs up one of the stilt houses and later escapes into the park outside. Whilst visiting his favourite enormous statues in the park, he meets two golden retrievers who live in the park permanently. Later Corin meets some pandas talking to his school friends, Ella, Lars and Himali. The animals tell the gang to go to the Round Pond, where they will be able to sail the real pirate ship that is moored there. After a terrifying encounter with a mastiff, the friends’ trust in the animals’ advice is rewarded when they find the pirate ship. While sailing, they come face-to-face with fierce pirates who try to kidnap them. Disaster seems imminent until the resourceful retrievers and pandas come to the rescue... Reminiscent of the works of Lewis Carroll, Charles Kingsley and Enid Blyton, The Pirate Ship will appeal to children aged 5-7 years. The Princess of Wales memorial playground and the Kensington gardens, although not actually named, will be recognised by children who love them through connection with the named nearby ‘Round Pond’. They might also recognise the equestrian statue and the striking golden Prince Albert Memorial statue in the story. The tale also contains various animals and fantasy elements and as such will appeal to a broad range of young readers. It has been inspired by E. M. Forster’s ‘The Celestial Omnibus’ and real-life events – Gillian takes her grandchildren into the children’s playground in Kensington Gardens, and has fond memories of her twin sister’s golden retrievers.
