The Jolley-Rogers and the Monster's Gold

What do pirate kids have nightmares about? The hideous Pirate-Cruncher! Ending up in a sea monster’s tummy is no fun at all. Matilda and the Jolley-Rogers have found a treasure map in an old bottle. But when they sail off to the treasure island, the Pirate-Cruncher gobbles them up. Uh-oh! Now they’re trapped in his stinky belly. Can the kids escape? Or are they totally stuck? Plus: this beast has swallowed so many pirates, there must be treasure in his tummy somewhere...
