When the mean and rotten pirates raid a ship they get more than they expect in the form of treasure when they find an abandoned baby girl. Violet, Vile for short, soon becomes the apple of every hardened pirate's eye and life on the oceans becomes a lot more interesting for the crew of the Sleek Sally. The Pirates have to teach her all sorts of pirating tricks, but she has a few things of her own to teach this world weary crew. A lovely, funny and very lively story that will grip young readers attention from start to finish.
