A nameless boy finds treasure, courage, and clues to his past in this hilarious high-seas adventure.
The Greasy Lobster, a pirate ship run by the notorious Captain Gallows, is no place for a kid. But when a young orphan arrives on board, the boy has no choice but to take the captain’s orders and get to work gutting fish in the galley. Without family, freedom, or even a name to call his own, the boy’s fate appears to be sealed, until fortune arrives in the least likely (and most disgusting) of places. Can he really turn his luck around in this ship full of thieving pirates, and does one of those pirates hold the key to this mysterious past?
