When a band of pirates needs a new crew member, young Jeremy Jacob jumps at the chance. He quickly discovers the challenges of life on a pirate ship—storms, swabbing the decks, walking the plank, mutiny. But it is hidden treasure that keeps a pirate’s life exciting! Jeremy learns there is treasure to be found not only on a pirate ship but also at home. This musical version of the American Library Association’s selection for a Notable Children’s Book Award will thrill pirates and landlubbers alike.
For ages 4 and up.
