The Legend of Captain Crow's Teeth

Publisher: Penguin

Review

Five brothers are spending the summer holidays in a cramped caravan in Ireland with their parents. They are mischievous little monkeys who are a trial to their parents.

Marty, the eldest, reads his brothers spooky stories, and his favourite is about Captain Crow, a cut-throat pirate who is out to get his revenge on any available nine year old boy. This summer, Will who is nine years old, is to be the butt of Marty's most elaborate prank so far.

With characters last seen in Colfer's The Legend of Spud Murphy, this is another light-hearted adventure for younger readers, in which the issue of sibling rivalry is deftly and humorously handled.
