She's so used to pleasing other people that she has lost track of how to be herself.

Anna Fienberg's fabulous new high-seas pirate adventure, with scoundrels and blaggards, devilish treachery and pirates who long for a bit of comfort - great reading for 8- to 12-year-olds from the world of Horrendo's Curse.

For each year pirates came to the islands to steal young boys for their crew. And if that happened to you, well, you may as well kiss your life good-bye.

I think the best number in the whole universe is eight. My friend, Asim, likes numbers about as much as me, but he likes them all - odd or even. Esmarelda, though, who lives across the street, isn't so fond of numbers and she hates math. Singing's more her thing. She's really good, too - nearly as good as my mum. Mum's a professional singer, or was, until we had to move. The worst number in the universe, though, is seven. For a start, it's an odd number, and it's thin and sharp and mean-looking, like a medieval scythe. So when I saw 777 on that Mustang's license plate, I knew it was the start of something bad. And I was right.
