Description

The pirates of the Dread Crew, ruthless junk hunters, are on the rampage through the Maritime woods. On their trail is a boy pirate tracker Eric Stewart, who gathers mounting evidence of their hooliganism until one day their clue-laden path of destruction completely disappears. Little does Eric know that the rumbling, stinking pirates are much, much closer than he thinks. This paperback edition includes eight pages of new content including a pirate glossary and praise pages. Check out dreadcrew.com for lots more additional content!

This book is recommended for antsy boys who long for glory, for spritely girls inclined to reach out for adventure, and for good-humored grown-ups who like the smack of Limburger and devils's club sandwiches with a dash of junebug pepper.

The Dread Crew: Pirates of the Backwoods contains things disgusting, rude, repulsive and crush-like in nature. It also includes the most gigantic party ever seen, a rampaging woodship, random explosions, a prison, an escape, inventions, blackberry sploosh and many, many secrets as well as unexplained stinks.

About the Authors

Kate Inglis

Kate Inglis is an award-winning author who writes books about pirates and giants and mermaids and magic and all the stars and all the ways we love each other. And frogs in a teeny-tiny folk band. Sometimes for kids and sometimes for grown-ups, Kate's novels and poetry are a mish-mash, and always infused with the salt, woodsmoke, and fresh air of the North Atlantic coast. Everyone knows mish-mashes keep you sharp.
