Description
Eleven-year-old Philippa has always loved Agatha Christie mysteries, and enjoys keeping a suspicious eye on the passengers of the cruise ship S.S. Excalibur, where she lives and her parents work. When the new captain brings his son Philip aboard, Philippa finally has a sleuthing partner to help her—if at times reluctantly—in this debut story of Elizabeth Levy's sea-going mystery series for readers 8 to 11, set with Caldecott Medalist Mordicai Gerstein's delightful ink drawings. So why does Philippa get the feeling that Philip is not being completely honest with her? And why is it that the strange woman who calls herself the duchess makes him so nervous?

"When two veterans such as Levy and Gerstein join forces, it's clear the result is going to be good, and with its intriguing high-seas locale, this new mystery series doesn't disappoint. A smart heroine, a cute boy, and a mystery that can be pretty easily solved make this right on target for a middle-grade audience. And with Caldecott Medalist Gerstein behind the expressive double-page illustrations, you can be sure the artwork is of a higher caliber than is found in most series fiction."—Booklist
