This tale of an accidental kidnapping will have you laughing out loud. A group of siblings cast off for a boarding school in England after their parents decide the island life is too barbaric. When pirates raid their ship they unintentionally get stuck with a raucous burden. I always appreciate a writer who can genuinely capture the voice of a child. This story is my go to gift book, I'll read it again and again!
Presents the story of children sent to England after a hurricane destroys their parents' Jamaican estate; after a pirate attack, the children are accidentally placed on a pirate vessel, and they adjust to life on the pirate ship.
