  • All in all it was perhaps the most amazing voyage that has ever been heard of. The excitement began with four stowaways (one of them the Cat's meat-man!); then came the Doctor's discovery of the key to the language of the shellfish. After that events crowded thick and fast; the stop at Spanish Island; the shipwreck; the landing on Floating Island; and all the adventures there till the Doctor is crowned king by the devoted natives and has to be got away home to Puddleby by stealth
