Nathan has always dreamed about pirates. So when Tamo White, the son of a pirate, suggests that Nathan go home with him to Madagascar, it is too good a chance to miss. But dreams are one thing, and reality another - is Nathan ready to meet real pirates? And then there's his sister, Mousy Maud - how will she survive in a strange land full of savages and cut-throats? Geraldine McCaughrean is one of the most highly-acclaimed living children's writers.
