      Nearly made 4 stars and has given me a great deal of pleasure. Read a little at a time in bed and very calming so saved for those nights when I needed a bit of calming - the verse is charming and informal, if a bit clunky at times and the pictures are a delight.

      I last read this book as a kid, years ago. It has sat on my shelf since, and I've meant to donate it or re-read, decide it's fate. It's fate is to remain forevermore in my collection. A dream of a story, filled with adventure, sailing through time and the high seas, with a rich cast of both good and evil men (and one faithful dog). The poetry and verse simply begs to be read out loud, put to music, sung by firelight, and the dark illustrations add depth to the written words. Lost souls, found tr [...]

      I picked this up on a random whim as I was intrigued by its rhyming verse form -- which I'm glad is still alive, although I am no reader of poetry -- not unlike Zorgamazoo. I enjoyed the ride of the adventure and thought it was told well enough with a pretty decent flow to both story and rhythm. It stayed within a traditional mold of swashbuckling naval adventures, saving the day, and resolution of the old sailor's curse -- which made it satisfying if not marvelous.

      Truly enchanting, a pleasant story by rhymes and certainly not trying hard. Just a cracking tale in verse.

      Incredibly enjoyable

      This relatively unknown, self-published book is a hidden gem that part of me wants to shout about to all the world, and part of me wants to keep hidden all for myself. The issue with self-published books is that if a book is good often it will find a publisher somewhere willing to publish it. Self-published books have a reputation for being rather poor. In the case of The Voyage of the Arctic Tern, I don't think it was turned away because it was not good, however, but on the grounds that it was [...]

      The Voyage of The Arctic Tern is just one of those books you don't forget about. I can honestly say I've never read anything like it. The story in itself is one that pulls you in: Fishermen, vikings, pirates, and a curse? I'm in.But what really cinches this book is its format. This book is a modern classic, an epic poem written completely in verse. For a lover of poetry, this book is a must-read, if purely for the experience. For those who dislike poetry, I would still recommend trying it (just [...]

      The guy who wrote this is one of those people that you just hate. He's an ICU consultant, a mountaineer, a diver, an author.This is a lovely story set in the Barbican area of Plymouth (the author was brought up in Oreston) with lots of familiar shops, very familiar pubs, etc. It's all written in rhyming couplets so by the end of it I was thinking that way, which was bizarre! Jennie owns the first copy of this book, which was signed at the launch at Plymouth Museum. Loved this book even before I [...]

      It's a beautiful ghost story told in rhyme. I've read it many times and it still sends a chill down my spine--I don't own a copy yet but I will someday! I love to read it aloud--the rhythm of the poetry is wonderful. I've even memorized the first few stanzas of the prologue

    • Steph says:

      The Voyage of the Arctic Tern is a book that I have only read once (a very long time ago), but it has hollowed itself out a little spot in my mind. It's a story that sticks with you, and as you travel you think back to it and wonder what made it so special to you in the first place.

    • Michele Velthuizen says:

      I read this book years ago and loved it. The 5th graders just started their exploration unit and I was reminded of this beautifully written prose. The entire book tells a story of adventure, treachery, and treasure. A great read-aloud.

    • Fayelee Conley says:

      I read this book so long ago! I remember loving it though, it is different the entire book is written as a poem. It is definitely an unforgettable read!

    • Erin says:

      I couldn't really get into it. The whole book is in rhyme, and it was hard to focus. It didn't seem to let you get to know the characters very well.

    • Krista the Krazy Kataloguer says:

      Great adventure story, and all told in rhyme! One of the few novels in verse that I've come across that was done in rhyme.

    • Colette says:

      Interesting story. I really liked the adventure, but I wasn't a huge fan of the poetry. I have no idea how a child would like it. I tried to ignore it after awhile because some was too sing-songy.

    • Kendra says:

      It's one of the loveliest books ever, and will always hold a special place in my heart. My DAD liked it, too. And that's saying a lot!

    • Gabby says:

      this book is written entirely in poetry and it is about a voyage with a mystery twisted in. I love this book
