The Pirate-Cruncher

Yucky pirates drawn in such detail you can see every hair in their beards and smell every drop of their grog. Join these salty sea dogs on a rip-roaring voyage to find (what else?) buried gold. There’s a fold-out map and hidden clues, plus all those other pirate essentials: buried treasure, peg-legs and parrots. But there’s also a rather hungry sea monster. He’s not scared of hairy pirates. He’s – GULP! CRUNCH! What just happened? You’ll have to laugh very hard to find out…
