The four children pleased when their new friend Jim invited them to go sailing on his yacht. They promised their mother to stay safely and not to sail out into the open sea. However, many bad things were happen...

This is an interesting adventure of children. I was surprised that children's ideas and actions were approproate. Characters in this story were very kind and warm person. It made me feel happy.
This family is ideal for me. ( )

This is very exciting story about three children who drifted in the sea accidently. I think they are clever and brave because they saild the ship, Goblin, on their own and finally they could succeed in meeting their parents. I got a courae from them. ( )
