Every fifth-grader at Tortuga Pirate Academy knows just what it takes to be a pirate captain: a strong arm, a big sword, a loud voice, and a mean streak a mile wide. How else do you keep a boat full of salty seadogs and scurvy swabs in line? Right? But when three young buccaneers-in-training find themselves marooned on a jungle island with the ghost of their greatest hero, the legendary Captain Fancybeard, they soon learn a different lesson. Anybody can bully and bluster, but it takes a special kind of courage to be a real leader. Join the swashbuckling, rope-swinging, skeleton-rattling fun as pirate cadets Reynaldo, Esmeralda, and Brian uncover Fancybeard’s most secret weapons: fair play, tolerance, and an open mind.
