Atticus Van Tasticus 2: The Map of Half Maps




The second book in the Atticus Van Tasticus pirate series from the hilariously funny team of Andrew Daddo and Stephen Michael King.

ATTICUS VAN TASTICUS is back. And this time he means business. Having escaped certain disaster on the high seas, he’s on the scent of treasure. Then the call comes from above: 'Ship ahoy, Captain, ship ahoy!'
