I bought a copy of Sinbad and Me last month on ebay, the Tempo paperback with the original Geer cover art, in acceptable condition, for $33 plus $4.00 shipping. That's the absolute cheapest I could find anywhere, with the Geer cover.
But I STILL don't know who killed the Captain!!!

Hi Krissie, and welcome to the message board. We are always hopeful that a smart legacy publisher will find the idea of publishing the Sinbad trilogy -- plus the Blue Man prequel -- to be desirable. Sadly, today's publishing world is a far different place than the one my father operated in. Meanwhile, if you go online and search for Sinbad and Me, there are copies for sale, although they of course cost way more than the original did in 1966 ($4.50!). You may not want to wait for a new edition.

Hi! My sister and I read Kin Platts Sindbad and Me as kids back in the early 70s and LOOOVED it. Our libraries copy has disappeared and ... sad face... now we have our own kids and want them to read the series. Will these books ever be republished? thanks!

Hi Barbara, and welcome to the Kin Platt message board. OK, that's a real challenge. To all of you who have posted concerning your affection for the Sinbad series, now's your chance to display your familiarity with the book and its plot lines. Please help Barbara find out who killed Captain Billy. Ten tell her about the other two books in the Sinbad trilogy. Thank you all.

I just read "Sinbad and Me" for the very first time and loved it. (I'm over 50.) But I'm going to read it again in a couple of days because I just realized I still don't know who murdered Captain Billy. ??? Does it say who, anywhere in the book? In a subsequent Steve Forrester book? It's driving me as crazy as the codes drove the Defoes.

To all you Sinbad lovers out there -- Sinbad & Me has just been rejected yet again for republishing by the company that published Thoreau (see elsewhere on this page). So, if any of you have ideas on what to do now -- or (even better) some contacts to do it with -- we would love to hear from you.

Thank you for your description of Margaret. It really helped me with my school project. i have read the book and it is one of my favorites. It would also be wonderful if you could tell me a website where they have the book on the internet. Not for sale, I just need too read some lines for my project.

Hi, Bree, thanks for dropping by the message board. For some reason, wasn't notified of your post. Sorry for the delay. Margaret Roberts is a beautiful young woman, blue eyes, golden hair, and a snappy dresser. She seems to be in her late-teens or early 20s, has a gentle sense of humor, certainly a strong sense of right vs. wrong and an adventurous spirit. She had been a shop clerk, whose roommate, another lovely young woman, also a store clerk, had apparently been murdered. Margaret, thinking she knows who the killer is, follows his trail to Boston, finally to Concord. Bree, you really should get the book. It's one of my father's alltime best novels.
