A surprise awaits the Clark family when they agree to a house exchange holiday. They’ve swapped their terraced home for a pirate ship! In time they learn to climb the rigging, count the treasure and fish for breakfast. But just what will the pirates do to their house?
Every day was easier and easier and before long they began to feel like real pirates. Mrs Clark could hoist the mainsail in three seconds flat (“Come on! Time me!”) Mr Clark fished for breakfast off the starboard side Emily mastered navigating by the stars and Justin climbed the crows nest to look for enemies. All too soon it was time to go. The Clarks said goodbye to Silver and rowed back to pier 7. Everyone agreed it had been the best holiday ever.
