On Halloween night, Charlotte Blue-Tongue, Peg-Leg Pete, Glass-Eyed Gabby, and their friends swashbuckle through the streets demanding loot and treasure from their neighbors, shouting, "We be pirates. Trick arrr treat!" But in this rhymed tale for readers up to 7, what's lurking in the shadows? Are the pirates brave enough to defend their treasure? In his energetic illustrations, Jorge Monlongo finds the humor in a gang of rogues who are actually a crew of young children, learning the ropes on Halloween.
