Second title in a middle grade pirate investigator trilogy.

A priceless golden chalice has been stolen from Chief Fergus McSwaggers and he wants it back!

Can Flynn and his ship mates solve their most dangerous case yet, battling deadly ice pirates, outsmarting squabbling clans, and facing the scariest beast of all the Seven Seas?


Praise for this book:

'The second book in a swashbuckling detective series, which can also be enjoyed as a standalone adventure. Funny and fast-paced, it will delight independent young readers, particularly those who speak Piratish and enjoy a hearty mystery.' Book Trust

'I would recommend this book to any year 2 and year 3 classroom. It is full of silly, fun, stinky humour which will leave this age range both falling off their seats and gripped by the adventurous plot. Partner this with Mark Elvins' hypnotic illustrations and we are really onto a winner for excitement and inspiring even the most reluctant of readers. A must for any lower key stage two classroom and bookcase in any 6-9 year old's bedroom.' Just Imagine

'Bound to be a hit with pupils in lower KS2' School Reading List, suggested reading list for year 3 pupils in KS2 aged 7-8

'This adventure book is great to get lost in. I really enjoyed it and the illustrations help to paint the picture. An amazing 'must read'! 10 stars out of 10 stars' Chloe, aged 14

'The author has this real ability to make even the most fantastic of stories seem real... Mark Elvins has produced the most amazing illustrations that bring the story to life and which are so intricate that the reader can spend quite a bit of time working their way through all of the detail.' MARGARET'S READING SHELF

'The story races along at a great rate of knots and Flyntlock's quick wits mean that readers never have to wait long for the next conundrum to be cracked so that the action can continue. Young readers will love Elvins' generously-detailed illustrations. Lively, monochrome cartoons accompany most pages, and occasional full-page spreads arrive like gifts just in time to draw children further into the most dramatic scenes. Full of chaotic energy and exaggerated characterisation, the pictures are comparable in style to those of Chris Riddell, and add enormous value to the overall enjoyment of the book.' BOOKS FOR KEEPS

'Clashing clans, family feuds and monstrous myths are woven together to create a fast and funny feast for junior sleuths. Once again, Mark Elvins' captivating illustrations add wit and depth to this highly illustrated chapter book as well as bringing the castle visitors and settings to life. With a clear nod to not judging others by their appearance or believing just one side of a story, this is also brilliant for discussion around how we treat others.' MISS CLEVELAND IS READING

'Keilty's prose is pacy and fun and Elvins' sumptuous illustrations adorn virtually every page - an absolute delight for newly independent readers and upwards.' MAT TOBIN
