Meet the Jolley-Rogers - a pirate family who're moving to Dull-on-Sea, a quiet seaside town. Stopping to fix up their ship, this unusual family get the whole neighbourhood spreading rumours. Defying the grown-ups, Matilda from next door decides to become friends with the youngest pirate son. When the Jolley-Rogers leave, the town discovers they were wrong to assume the worst - the pirate clan have buried treasure in everyone's gardens (shown in a stunning double-gatefold). Matilda feels sad until she discovers her own treasure - an incredibly exciting new pen friend.

Review:

Duddle's rhymes have the buoyant, singsong quality of a sea shanty... he does an excellent job of exaggerating the pirates' slightly menacing yet silly appearance and the concerned glances and raised eyebrows of the unwelcoming community.
--Publishers Weekly

A jolly good tale for one-on-one sharing.
--School Library Journal

Veiled in humor, but hard not to read as a parable that tweaks narrow minds and parochial attitudes.
--Kirkus Reviews

The digital art features slightly exaggerated figures that could easily have stepped out of an animated film... The real fun comes in the contrast between the visual minutiae of the pirate family and the depiction of the "normal" people. It's in no way subtle, but pirate-wannabes won't bat an eye patch.
--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Duddle has written a delightful story sure to entertain all pirate lovers!
--Library Media Connection (highly recommended)

We've all wanted to run off and be pirates sailing the seven seas and shouting "Argh" at people, but how many of us have had pirates move in next door? Matilda has.
--Huffington Post Parents blog
