Sparks New Readers: Pigsticks and Harold and the Pirate Treasure
It’s stormy seas ahead for Tuptown unless Pigsticks and his loyal first mate, Harold, can track down an elusive pirate treasure on Little Piggy Island. Tuptown is in trouble. To save it, Pigsticks and Harold must come up with a huge ransom to buy the town from greedy Sir Percival. With his piggy bank empty, Pigsticks turns to a family heirloom: the treasure map of Pigsticks’s great-great-grandpig, Pirate Pigbeard. Dressed like scalawags, with a trove of swashbucklers’ supplies, the daring duo sets sail. But the atmospheric (some might say “rickety”) old pirate ship Pigsticks chooses can’t stand up to the bluster and squall of the briny deep. Marooned on Little Piggy Island, how will Pigsticks and Harold find the treasure and get back to Tuptown in time? Adventure abounds in this third chapter-book adventure starring the valiant Pigsticks and his trusty pal.
