Review quote

The irreverent wit plus fabulous embellishments by Ross Collins will swash your buckles * Sunday Times * Delightfully nasty, bonkers piratical fun. I laughed out loud on the Tube!' * Robin Stevens, bestselling author of Murder Most Unladylike * Think The Mighty Boosh for 8-year-olds with a dash of Lemony Snicket thrown in. Although Mabbitt has a voice all of his own. * The Times * Anarchic, adventurous and extremely funny, this is a fantastic debut at the younger end of middle-grade. * The Bookseller *
