This is an incredible book. Children can lose themselves in its pages, looking for the snail ‘n’ crossbones, or just enjoy the story. The illustrations are outstanding. If you don’t have this book, you would do well to get it! What child wouldn’t like to be the hero in setting a ship free from an evil spell?
