The Pirate-Cruncher

Yucky pirates drawn so well you can see every hair in their beards and smell every drop of their grog. Amazing art. Brilliant rhymes. What’s your job? To read this story VERY LOUD. Join these salty sea dogs on a rip-roaring quest. It’s got a fold-out map and hidden clues. Plus all those pirate essentials: buried treasure, peg-legs, parrots and lots of gold. But there’s also – ulp – a rather hungry sea monster. He’s not scared of hairy pirates. He’s – GULP! CRUNCH! What just happened? You’ll have to laugh very hard to find out.
