Synopsis

A ten-year-old pirate captain? Absurd? Not in the world of Atticus Van Tasticus, the first in a fabulously funny illustrated junior fiction series from the brilliant and whacky creative minds of Andrew Daddo and Stephen Michael King. It’s 1750, when times were tough and teeth were rotten… 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 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).
