When Big B is dragged from his comfortable
life and close friends in Chicago by his grand-
father's mysterious affliction, he's sure he's

mysteries. What they uncover will help them
save the island, restore his grandfather's soul,
and break the curse of the Bone Pirates.

With a captivating plot, fascinating characters,
and an important ecological message, Curse of
the Bone Pirates will haunt and delight young
readers ages 8 and up. Read it.
Life may depend on it!
