Missee Lee by Ransome, Arthur

Publisher’s Synopsis

The Swallows, Amazons and Captain Flint don’t pay much heed to the harbourmaster’s friendly warning as they set off for China. They are on a round-the-world voyage aboard the Wild Cat and it’s been plain sailing for a hundred ports. But when Gibber, the ship’s monkey, accidentally sinks their faithful boat things take a serious turn for the worse. Separated, captured, miles from home, the Swallows and Amazons are about to meet their fate and the pirate who holds it: the legendary Missee Lee…

In the ‘Backstory’ you can learn to decipher Nancy’s Morse code and find out about the real life inspirations for Missee Lee.
