I was wrong,' said Captain Flint. 'He's not mad but bad. It isn't only eggs he wants. He wants to take the credit for it. You're quite right. It's up to us, it's up to the ship, to see he doesn't. 'Dick's birdwatching discovery turns the cruise of the Sea Bear into a desperate chase. Not only do the Swallows and Amazons have to prove the facts of the case but they also have to dodge the savage natives and evade the ruthless pursuit of a fanatic egg-collector, determined to kill a pair of rare birds and steal the credit. Fortunately, Nancy has a few plans.

This is a wonderful example of an adventure story in which the bad guy is a beleivable, even likely average Joe type of guy. It is wonderful to see the simple goodness and desire to help, save and preserve that comes through these children. A simple pleasure an pure joy to read about something that could really actually happen and yet is an adventure still! All 8 of the children are there, plus captain Flint of course so it is a wonderful tale and a definate must-have, I do!
