There are few writers for kids anywhere in the world who write pure adventure quite so well as Kenneth Oppel. Iain Lawrence comes to mind, especially in his High Seas trilogy. But Oppel's latest novels are . . . well, higher. The ships of which he speaks are rigged and sailed and subject to the vagaries of storms and pirates, but they are ships of the air, zeppelins, massive frigates of the sky.
