When Patch runs up the gangway of steamship, RMS Glorious, she isn’t planning to hang around. But if she leaves her hiding place the constable might catch her: sitting tight is worth the risk. Too late, she realises the ship is setting sail! Patch has become an accidental stowaway.
Luckily, Patch’s unconventional past has made her pretty fearless when it comes to fending for herself, and besides there are friends in high and low places to be made onboard.
But hiding away becomes less and less easy: her new friends urgently need her help and there’s a mystery that needs solving, all before they reach New York . . .
With gorgeous chapter head illustrations by Kim Geyer.

A rollicking, salty, breath of fresh air. Gorgeous period detail. Great friendships. I feel like I’ve been on an adventure.
Absolutely adored it! Pacy, witty, with more ups & downs than a mid Atlantic swell.
The Accidental Stowaway by Judith Eagle sucked me in like a whirlpool . . . I love Patch, her fearlessness and itchy feet.
A voyage to NYC and a page-turning adventure, brimming with sea spray, spirit & wanderlust. An all round joy to read.
