Captain Purplebeard is obsessed with treasure. So when he learns from a fiddler about an island loaded with riches he is thrilled. But is setting sail to a place that no-one has ever returned from really such a good idea? The crew of the Black Hole, along with Captain Purplebeard, might be making a monstrous mistake…
Mayhem and skulduggery aplenty in a fantastically funny pirate adventure which has a very surprising ending. Told in a mixture of narrative and rhyming verse this makes for a great read aloud. The illustrations are highly entertaining and the colourful characters leap off the page.
Recommended for 5+.
