Meet Captain Falsebeard and Admiral Swinetoes, bitter enemies of the briny blue! Captain Falsebeard has stolen the legendary Crossbone treasure from right under the nose of his sworn enemy, Admiral Swinetoes.

But the dastardly Swinetoes will stop at nothing to beat his rival and claim the treasure for his own, once and for all!

About the Author

Fred never wanted to be an astronaut or drive a train when he grew up. Right from the beginning he knew he wanted to draw silly pictures of a living ... And some decades later he's living the dream! Interrupted only by tea breaks and toddlers, Fred works from his home studio in Swindon, Wiltshire, UK where he lives with his wife and two young children. Captain Falsebeard is his first picture book.
