Will could walk a tightrope and juggle bananas as he went. "One day you'll be the star of a circus," his mother told him. "But until then, you must be a secret." For each year pirates came to the islands to steal young boys for their crew. And if that happened to you, well, you may as well kiss your life goodbye. So what's a young lad to do when his mother disappears and pirates arrive at his door? Will takes courage from a crazy truth-telling parrot, and his mother's advice: "Keep putting one foot in front of the other and your eyes on the prize." But will this be enough to survive the perils at sea? And will that infuriatingly polite boy called Horrendo finally tip the balance? A high-seas pirate adventure about finding the most precious treasure of all.
