Corby Flood by Chris Riddell

Book Description

Corby Flood and her family are about to set sail on the rather ramshackle cruise ship, the S.S. Euphonia. Her boisterous brothers might not have noticed that anything is wrong, but Corby is highly observant and has a lot of time for note-taking and eavesdropping. Onboard, amongst all the odd passengers and eccentric crew, there is a strange group of men in bowler-hats who call themselves The Brotherhood of Clowns. There's also a melancholy wailing sound coming from the hold. It's strictly out of bounds but Corby can't help investigating. What could be inside the crate she discovers down in the hold? As the ship arrives at its destination, Corby must enlist the help of some very well moustachioed locals to uncover the contents of the crate and the dark secrets of the menacing Clowns...

Book Review: Corby Flood by Chris Riddell - Reviewed by (15 Jul 2011)

Corby Flood is miserable, sailing on a huge, beautiful and slightly shabby ship to Harbour Heights Town, a place where everything will be changing for her and her family. After a bad accident, the family are moved away from all they know and only have to look forward to going to a dreadful school where Corby is sure will be perfectly dreadful. And, as is generally the way when things have begun to go a bad way, Corby had only one thing to look forward, seeing all the majestic sights as they flew past in the sea liner, even stopping and exploring, but that is a far off thing, not possible for a moment, anymore. Then something amazingly strange happens, and Corby is forced to take things into her own small hands!
