A Note from the author Chris Powling:

I’ve always found pirates exciting – to read about, that is. In real life they must have been hard and cruel. So maybe you had to be just as hard, and just as cruel, to get the better of them. That’s what this story is about.

Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers. To view other titles we think are suitable for reluctant readers please click here.
