Warm up your pirate voice for this energetic treasure hunt

Half-Pint Pete the Pirate sailed half the seven seas, but with only half of a treasure map, he's never found what he's looking for. Until the day he meets Belle - a pirate with half a map of her own. At first, Pete is eager to steal Belle's share, but half a team isn't enough to find the treasure, and Pete soon realizes that working together is much more fun!

Lively verse and bright illustrations make this highseas adventure fun for seafarers and landlubbers alike!
