Community Description Willie Venturely is the sort of boy that has never cared about school...because he doesn't like Miss Dullywinkle's history class where he must write research reports on historical heroes or flunk! Flunking history doesn't matter to Willie because all he cares about is avoiding his twin sister, Tillie (whenever possible), riding his bike, finding collectibles to stash in his very messy desk at school and fishing for them during Miss Dullywinkle's boring history lesson.

The unusual compass draws the twin siblings into the magical, humorous, and wonderfilled world of Admiral Wright and Captain Perry Parrot, a wacky pair of time travelers.
