'My name is John. When I was a small boy I fought the fiercest pirate in the world! This is my story.
It was a hot summer day. I was fishing for crabs in the harbour of Sark island. I looked out to sea.
A ship was in the distance. It had black sails and a black flag with white bones and a skull. Pirates!
The pirates rowed ashore. Their captain had burning fuses in his hair. He looked like a devil! 'My name is Blackbeard," he shouted. I am the lord of this island now.".....'
Eek! The evil Blackbeard starts as he means to go on. He takes everything and locks everyone in the church.....all except one little lad, (who no-one ever sees)........who manages to sail to the next island and get the help that is needed! All that is required, is a cunning plan........but watch out at the end!
Lots of action packed into 31 pages!
