Jake loves to hunt for treasure, so when the famous pirate Captain Kidd asks him to be his cabin boy, he can't refuse. But Jake soon learns that bringing home an invisible pirate can be a real disaster, particularly when the pirate is mortally terrified of his teenage sister. There are many rules of the sea, and Captain Kidd's own cabin boy, Richard Barleycorn, teaches Jake how to face his biggest fear, Boris Baxter, the meanest boy in the whole school.

Read an Excerpt

Jake saw something very strange. Even stranger than his older sister Gladys after she dyed her hair green.

There was a pirate standing on top of a teeter-totter. The pirate rocked back and forth as if he were on a ship in a stormy sea. Jake rubbed his eyes and stared.

"Ahoy, my hearty!" roared the pirate when he saw Jake.

"Me?" squeaked Jake.

"Ahoy, cabin boy! What are you doing in those bushes?"
