Short, illustrated and outrageously funny! When a pirate arrives at Billy and Heidi's door, it's the start of a crazy and unpredictable adventure as they sail their 'fish-finger' house to Itchy Ear Island, and learn all sorts of quirky facts about pirates, parrots and cabbages along the way.

'Who is the captain of this here fish finger house?'

Billy was in his tree house when the treasure map blew in and then his sister, Heidi, called, 'There's a pirate at our door! And a pig.' Well, the pirate stomped down the hallway and wanted to know what sort of a ship this was, and where the sails were, and which way to the galley. And then he sat in Dad's chair, pulled a spoon from his pocket and said,

'Where's my porridge?'

So, hoist the sails! Man the poop deck! Come on a crazy pirate adventure and find out what pirates really do when they find treasure.
