An award-winning author creates this exotic tale of a 14-year-old who dreams of fighting pirates in faraway lands. When his father dies, young Nathan is left penniless. Then Tamo, the son of a famous pirate, invites him to join him in Madagascar, and Nathan and Tamo confront dangerous buccaneers as well as extreme culture shock. This adventure is as much about the children's personal growth as their swashbuckling exploits.
