Description
Step aboard, buccaneers and book lovers Comically dramatic illustrations set the tone for this humorous, hare-raising adventure on the high seas.
"BATTEN DOWN THE HATCHES "
Aboard a ship called the Salty Carrot sails a wild, rowdy band of Buccaneer Bunnies. Their leader, Barnacle Black Ear, is the baddest bunny brute of all time, but his son refuses to perform his proper pirating duties. Henry would rather read books than shout "Shiver me timbers " or make prisoners walk the plank even if it means he has to swab the decks as punishment. But when a crashing, bashing, thrashing wildcat of a storm threatens the Salty Carrot and its crew, will Henry and his landlubbin' library save the day?
