The Jolley-Rogers and the Ghostly Galleon

Treasure, thieves, ghostly pirates. The ultimate shiver-your-timbers adventure. Get spooked! Would you dare spend a night in a haunted house? Then imagine spending a month on a haunted ship! Every full moon, a mysterious galleon is seen off the coast of Dull-on-Sea. While it’s there, gold and jewellery vanish from the town. Can Matilda and Jim Lad bring back the stolen booty from the phantom ship – all before the moon fades? If they don’t, they’ll be stuck on board with ghostly pirates until the next full moon…
