When you live on Freak Street the Pirateson’s are pretty much an average family. Sure their house is a boat, and they have a pet piranha. Patty Pirateson is more interested in skateboarding than doing pirate things and their dad is certain he will be the one to find a long-lost treasure map leading to the Golden Underpants. They didn’t expect to come across Captain Cuddle or get stranded on an island with a volcano about to blow them up. Sometimes though solutions come from the strangest of places. And the Golden Underpants might be something other than what is expected.
A silly story perfect for someone looking for something fun. The story is quirky and entertaining, the illustrations bold and colourful. Each chapter is quite short making it a good choice for young or reluctant readers.
