The Jolley-Rogers and the Ghostly Galleon

How can you get rid of terribly ghostly pirates? By ruse, courage and good friends!

The_Jolley-Rogers_and_the_Ghostly_Galleon1In Dull-on-Sea, Matilda’s hometown, the museum has been robbed. Was it done by pirates? Matilda sends a bottle message to the Jolley-Rogers, the craziest pirate family in the world. Grandad Rogers already has an idea who is behind the forays: It is Captain Twirlybeard and his ghostly pirates!

Together with her best friend young pirate Jim Lad, Matilda forges out a plan. And while the inhabitants of Dull-on-Sea are busy hiding everything under lock and key, Matilda and the Jolley-Rogers set out to send Captain Twirlybeard and his ghostly pirates to the sea bed for ever.
