Description of this Book

1750, when times were tough and teeth were rotten... As part of an ancient family tradition - as a birthday gift from his rich Grandnan, Atticus Van Tasticus chooses a pirate ship, a choice that will change the course of history - well, OK - his story, at least. Instead of going to school or down a coal mine, Atticus pulls together a rag-tag bunch misfits - OOPS - a tough, brilliant crew, and sets out to wreak havoc - AHEM - live a piratin' life. With almost nothing, Atticus has a heart for adventure and beauty and danger. Where any minute might be your last, and your next minute could be your best. (If only they could get off the dock...)
