Born on Thunder Island in the Cannonball Seas, Will is kept a secret by his mother who is afraid he will be kidnapped by pirates. Living an idyllic life, Will learns to walk a tightrope and plans to be a circus star. Unfortunately Will’s mother’s fears are realised and he is kidnapped at the request of an especially unpleasant pirate captain. This is a wonderful high-seas pirate adventure about scoundrels and blaggards, devilish treachery, and finding the most precious treasure of all.
