They’ve done it!!! The pirate kids have found buried treasure!!! Too bad Rotten Tooth was there to take it away, mumbling something about scallywags . . .

Could it be cursed?

In-a-word(s): arrrrr
First note that this is a chapter book and for ages 4-8. But me being me, doesn't stop me from reading this gem of a book.

Along with friendship, team work and a bit o'pirate-ing with a life lesson or two to be learned this is a book that I enjoyed reading and reading aloud.

AND, the illustrations are a hoot that go well with the storyline as well ;-D

  2. It's kinda lame, but it made me giggle.

    A pirate walks into a bar wearing a paper towel on his head. He sits down at the bar and orders some dirty rum.

    The bartender asks, "Why are you wearing a paper towel?"

    "Arrr..." says the pirate. "I've got a bounty on me head!"
