The Lovereading4Kids comment
Those terrible pirate twins are at it again! Their relentless pursuit of treasure is causing all sorts of havoc in the seaside town of Little Snoring, and only youngsters Tat and Hetty - and their cat called Dog - have a chance of stopping them. Packed with hilarious illustrations this is the third side-splitting pirate adventure in the Ghastly McNastys series.
A Piece of Passion from Ruth Williams, Publisher The Ghastly McNastys: Fright in the Night is the third book about the ghastliest nastiest pirates to sail the Seven Seas, and it's just as funny as the other ones. It's full of surreal humour, weird happenings, random information and instructions to the reader, and larger than life characters. I really like the way that the pictures often show much more than what is happening in the text. Although there's something funny and silly on every page, there's still a strong narrative drive, and I just love the ending!

The Ghastly McNastys: Fright in the Night by Lyn Gardner
Gruesome and Grisly McNasty are sure they know where Captain Syd’s legendary treasure is buried. But before they get digging they need to keep the villagers away. So they scare them into thinking the place is haunted. But youngsters Tat and Hetty aren’t going to be put off by a few spooky noises and dim lights, and soon find out what the McNastys are up to. They decide to outwit the dastardly duo by pretending to be the ghost of Captain Syd, seeking revenge on anyone stealing his treasure!
