"One night, young Tom is awoken by noises outside his house. He peeps out of the window and what should he see but PIRATES. And stranger still - they're GIRL PIRATES stealing the front of his house! "
Tom is swept into an exciting pirate escapade alongside a crew led by girl-pirates. Their destination? An island where a crew of rather lazy and comical grown-up pirates are lackadaisically guarding their treasure. Sensing an opportunity for adventure, Tom and the girl-pirates launch a surprise attack, swiftly reclaiming the treasure and setting sail once more into the open seas!
