Page Turner Adventures, Captain Book's Pirate Adventure, Day 1

 


WEEK 6

A HIGH SEAS ADVENTURE

Shiver me timbers! Captain Book has been cursed to live as a pirate with a book permanently attached to his hand. Worse, he has been forced to tell the same story to his crew of Book-A-Neers over and over again! To break the curse, kids at home join Page, Kenny, and a cast of salty dogs on a comic quest to discover the captain’s treasure trove of overdue library books. Along the way, our heroes discover a treasure map, solve riddles, and sing a sea shanty or two in this “piratical” production filled with swashbuckling fun.
