Ballantyne, R. M.: Jarwin and Cuffy. v1. 15 June 07
Another South Sea Island adventure story by R. M. Ballantyne. Ballantyne was very popular during his time, and his writing appealed to both adults and younger readers.
Here's a quote from the book to see if it grabs your attention:
"Thoroughly understanding and appreciating this remark, Cuffy roused himself and looked on with profound interest, while his master cut up a dried fish. Having received a large share of it, he forgot everything else, and devoted all his powers, physical and mental, to the business in hand. Although Jarwin also applied himself to the food with the devotion of a man whose appetite is sharp, and whose strength needs recruiting, he was very far indeed from forgetting other things. He kept his eyes the whole time on the approaching sail, and once or twice became so absorbed and so anxious lest the vessel should change her course."
This one's short, so you might want to give it a try.
I hope you enjoy it.
