The Mousehunter #2: The Curse of Mousebeard

By Alex Milway (Trade Paperback, 2011)
Across the Seventeen Seas lies a world filled with spies, ship battles, and secrets....

For many years, a curse has condemned Captain Mousebeard, the feared mousehunting pirate, to a life at sea, never to set foot on dry land. But the dastardly Isaiah Lovelock, Mousebeard's mortal enemy, is growing in power, and only Captain Mousebeard is brave enough to stop him.

In order to stand a chance against Lovelock, the fearless Emiline and her friends-now fugitives themselves- must help the captain break the curse before his fate is sealed forever. Their adventure takes them to Norgammon, a mythical land of lost mice. There, they are introduced to a wonderful and dangerous assortment of mouse species, and a terrifying battle awaits them.

Will Emiline and her crew be able to escape their enemies' claws unscathed?

Alex Milway currently lives in London and works in magazines, where he discovered his love of writing. He once had a run-in with a particularly deadly Sharpclaw Mouse but lived to tell the tale. The Mousehunter: The Curse of Mousebeard is the lively follow-up to his exciting debut novel for young readers, The Mousehunter.
  • "The author's unique vision...matched by stronger writing chops make this second title in the energetic series a recommended pick for young readers in search of new worlds to explore." (Kirkus Reviews).

  • "Action and adventure abound as plucky Emiline once again takes to the high seas...[in] the imaginative world that Milway has created." (School Library Journal).

  • Praise for The Mousehunter:
    "While Emiline's adventure has its share of twists and thrills...the imaginative panoply of prized critters is the true hook, aided and abetted by Milway's fanciful illustrations and his strong, persistent sense of quirkiness.  A quite different and just plain fun yarn ripe for a sequel." (Booklist).

  • "Emiline is feisty, clever and loyal....More adventures seem to await Emiline in future books, and readers, having gotten to know the hard-nosed, soft-hearted pirates, and their unusual mice, will be glad." (Publishers Weekly).

  • "Readers will enjoy the action, chases, and plot twists, and will look forward to the sequel that's sure to follow." (School Library Journal).
