LoveReading View on History of Warts: Custardly Wart: Pirate (third Class)

A very funny new series from the creator of Trolls, it’s a brilliant mix of Horrible Histories and Blackadder. Fast-moving, side-splittingly funny, irreverent adventure stories are played out against the backdrop of great and gruesome history through one family tree, the disastrously unlucky Warts, through the centuries as they attempt to survive whatever is thrown at them. In Custardly Wart Pirate (third class) an entire class of children from an orphanage discover they’ve become crew to a dastardly captain whose plan is to find some hidden treasure. Can Custardly Wart save the day? Be sure to check out the other book in the History of Warts series Ditherus Wart: (accidental) Gladiator.

History of Warts: Custardly Wart: Pirate (third Class) Synopsis

A new teacher arrives at the Dankmarsh School for poor orphans. He has an eyepatch, a huge moustache and calls himself the Captain. On a school trip to visit the Black Barnacle, a ship owned by an 'old pal', the Captain gives Miss Scrubshaw the slip and it dawns on the children that the ship has cast off, and they are the new crew.
