The Sea Devil

Boy fishing on a wharf with a soldier.
Sunset over ice in Antarctica.

by Paul Mason

illustrated by Kimberly Andrews

"Just beyond the long arm of the wharf, the camp’s launch, Pearl, tugged at its mooring. The thought of a big fish jagging on his line quickened James’s pace, and it wasn’t until he was on the wharf that he saw he was not alone. A dark figure leant against one of the piles – it was one of the Germans, staring at the boat."
