Space Pirates and the Monster of Malswomp by Scoular Anderson


Space Pirates and the Monster of Malswomp by Scoular Anderson

Pirate treasure hunters Captain Tosca, Needlespune, Dogzboddi and Coleslaw have returned but this time the treasure is guarded by the dreaded monster of Malswomp who will think nothing of gobbling up the crew of the Sleepy Sheep for breakfast! There is only one way past the monster and a clue has been hidden on jigsaw pieces hidden all over the planet. The pirates must identify the correct docking pod, read a metro map, and navigate their way around the dark and dangerous sewers. But is that Silverina Slyce and her band of Spaceway Men lurking around every turn? With rickety walkways, weird and wonderful creatures and all sorts of different areas to explore, map reading has never been so much fun.
