When a bunch of mean and rotten pirates, led by a captain who is afraid of blood, raid an abandoned ship, they find far more than they bargained for on board. They find a baby girl whom they happily adopt and call Violet:"Vile" for short. Soon the pirates are busy caring for the little girl and teaching her lots of piratical ways. Great times are had as the pirates and Violet happily sail the seven seas in their trusty ship, the Sleek Sally. The wonderful adventures that they share make for hilarious reading.
Ideal for first readers, this fast-paced, action-packed, and belly-laugh-aloud book will warm the cockles of landlubbers' hearts everywhere.
