This classic children’s adventure story pits ten-year-old Siri against the villainous Captain Whitehead in a bid to save her little sister from slavery. Though set in a frozen arctic world, it’s a truly heart-warming tale of friendship, sisterly love and courage in the face of all odds. For children aged seven and up.
