The Adventures of Tiller and Turnbuckle 2: The Islands of the Bahamas
In this second adventure of Tiller and Turnbuckle, Grandpa Dachshund tells his seven grand puppies the story of how Tiller, a dachshund who loves to sail, and Turnbuckle, the calico cat who loves adventure, rescue a dog from the sea during a storm as they sail away from St. Simons Island. Before the dog passes out, he mutters, ...must...find...ship...Jamaica. Then his paw opens, and a glass eye falls onto the deck. Tiller and Turnbuckle change course for Jamaica on a quest to find the ship. But Tiller, Turnbuckle, and the dog are captured by pirates. A chase begins across the Bahama Islands with swordfights, amazing escapes, and daring rescues. Join Tiller and Turnbuckle, and their many animal friends, in this tale of mutiny and buried treasure.
