Get on board The Grandnan, the fantastic ship owned by Atticus Van Tasticus, 10 year old rookie pirate.
It's 1750, when times were tough and teeth were rotten, when kids could be pirates and clocks went tick-tock.
As part of an ancient family tradition, young Atticus Van Tasticus narrowly escapes a life down the coal mines – or worse, going to school – when he gets to choose the gift of a pirate ship from his Grandnan’s treasure pile.
It’s a choice that will change the course of history – well, OK, his story, at least. Atticus pulls together a rag-tag bunch of misfits – AHEM – a tough, brilliant crew, and sets out to wreak havoc – I mean – live a piratin’ life.
With little else to his name, Atticus has a taste for adventure, 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).
