But when her clumsiness destroys a treasure map and injures First Mate Scully, she knows she must learn to be even better.Eager to make things right, Augusta sets out alone for Crossbones Island.

Editorial Reviews

Following the format she set forth in the book's two predecessors, Winters once again fills her text with piratical lingo while highlighting three adjectives (in this case, 'crafty,' 'nimble,' and 'fearless'), allowing her heroine to embody them in her own way. Augusta is proactive, takes charge, and even has a thing or two to say about generosity when the moment is right. Griffiths' illustrations are in fine form here, by turns beautiful in their evocative backgrounds while also displaying an array of impressively expressive kits and pups.
