Summary
Twin brothers Eric and Clive are ready for adventure on the high seas, so instead of staying with their grandparents yet again, they stow away on the cruise ship on which their father serves as Senior Steward. "How do you mean -- 'just go anyway, ' Clive?" I asked. "I mean, we could just sort of sneak on board, " Clive said, "when no one is looking. And then sort of find ourselves an empty cabin somewhere and just sort of settle down for the trip. I mean, let's face it, it has to be better than looking at that big corduroy patch on the bottom of Granddad's trousers." With that, twins Eric (older and considerably wiser by about five minutes) and Clive hatch a plan to stow away on a luxury cruise liner, where their dad is the Senior Steward. How can their scheme possibly fail? Okay, so Clive is a compulsive liar, with a tendency toward disastrous mishaps, but it's worth the risk. All they have to do is stay out of Dad's way and stay out of trouble -- for three whole weeks. From the moment the ship leaves the dock, readers will be laughing out loud at this rip-roaring comedy on the high seas
