You may have heard of Blackbeard and Calico Jack, but have you heard of Captain Rob’n Plunder? You haven’t? Well then you are in luck, because this book will tell you all about this captain and his crew.

Captain Plunder and his sex crewmates sail the world’s ocean in their ship, the Sea Dog. Here they are attacking the H.M.S Miss Fortune. Freddy the helmsman has stolen the countesses jewels, and Charlie the cook has taken a valuable orange tree from the countesses gardener. The pirates are in for a treat tonight – orange juice!

After a busy day plundering the pirates go on shore to rest, relax, and to get supplies. Then it is off to look for buried treasure.

With numerous flaps to lift, and delightfully detailed illustrations to explore, this amusing novelty title will warm the cockles of young pirate fan’s hearts. Not only will children get to look into secret places, but they also will get to look for treasure using a secret treasure map.
