In the early 1950s, a boy boards a huge liner bound for England. Placed at the lowly Cat's Table for mealtimes, the youngster encounters an eccentric group of grown-ups and two other boys, Cassius and Ramadhin. As the ship makes its way across the ocean, the boys tumble from one adventure and delicious discovery to another.

Reading Group review. We almost all finished the book. An interesting story combined with autobiographical and historical details. Easy to read and with interesting details from the 1930s-40s - but possibly not the most memorable book.
