A perfectly pitched, irresistibly charming read-aloud picture book for the youngest pirate enthusiasts!"Down, down, down the dark, dark street they came. Up, up, up the dark, dark house they climbed.

Only the moon & one little boy."Tom is awoken by a band of rough, tough little girl pirates, so what does he do? He joins their ranks! Together they set sail in search of treasure. But what will happen when they meet a crew of rough, tough grown-up pirates? Readers will be swept up in the spare, jaunty text, & quirky illustrations in this unexpected bedtime adventure.
