Miranda (12yo) and her brother Marko (10yo) are on school holiday without any adult supervision. After watching TV, playing, and eating dessert for breakfast for a couple days, they start to get nervous and wonder where their grandfather, Ye Ye, is -- Ye Ye always watches them when their parents are away on business. A magic mirror is delivered to their home from Ye Ye, and the siblings start on an adventure to find him.

Miranda and Marko travel into the past, taking readers into the 1400s on a ship and into a battle against pirates. Fun facts galore on top of all the action keep readers engaged in both the facts and fiction of this story. The Visionary Voyage is Tsai and Vittachi’s first book in a series that brings little-known historical events to life for readers brave enough to journey with them.
