When one-eyed parrot, Clawbeak, escapes from Fang, the cat from hell, he is rescued by a boy on a mission to find the perfect pirate story
"Ahoy there, Johnnycake! Captain Clawbeak's the name."
Jack Dawkins is trying to find the inspiration for a pirate story—it's a school project. But he doesn't know any pirates and his dad won't let him have a parrrot. Then he meets Captain Clawbeak and he has more story than he ever imagined, and a pirate's treasure map thrown in. A lasting friendship between boy and parrot is formed in blood and salt water—that's the way it is with pirates.
