The first one is easy: Daron again. See Day 14.
Seafaring Novel: De scheepsjongens van Bontekoe.
It's been years since I read this, but I loved this as a kid and it's pretty much the perfect seafaring novel, as far as I am concerned. My cousin recently hooked me up with the English translation, named Java Ho! and I am looking forward to reading that. maybe i'll try reading it to my son. It might be right up his alley. I'll keep you posted on the quality of the translation.
