Did you know the Seahawk from The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle is mentioned in another of Avi's books? Check out The Man Who Was Poe for a cameo (source).

Avi found inspiration for The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle in Edgar Allan Poe's mystery "The Murders in the Rue Morgue" (source).

A movie version of The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle is rumored to be in the works – with none other than Morgan Freeman as Zachariah (source). Pretty cool, huh?
