The Young Rajah

Oswald and Violet live an exotic life on their parents’ plantation in Ceylon. One day their uncle, a captain in the Royal Navy, invites them to his frigate. The ship is a truly magical place where the two children make exciting discoveries, have fun with the ship’s crew, and delight in the various pets that are on board. The frigate sets sail. Oswald has thrilling fantasies about engaging enemy ships and defeating pirates in combat, but when the captain receives a report about a slave trader things become much more serious.
