About the Book

The Brave Mousse, Deck Boy captures some of the many voyages of the tall ship "Putnick". The story is told by the ship's former mousse, a young man all of thirteen years old.

Climb aboard as the Putnick fishes in the North Sea and unexpectedly catches an ocean mine. Traverse the stormy North Atlantic through fogs and icebergs without the benefit of radar, as the Putnick narrowly avoids the same fate as the Titanic. Help the crew haul a 200-pound pig aboard using a fishing setup. Watch as the mousse comes of age by enduring heartbreak and loss, including the death and burial of a naval officer at sea.

The Brave Mousse, Deck Boy is a thrilling and touching adventure that will leave you captivated.
