This funny story about pirates will also show how important it is to listen. The pirate crew of the 'Golden Duck' are excited about going into Port Pegleg to spend their gold coins. However, no one listens to Captain Cod's warning about his old enemy, Captain Blackears and his Horrid Pirates, who want to steal the pirate crew's treasure and hold the pirates for ransom. Has not listening to Captain Cod put the pirates in danger? If so, can good listening save them?The books in the 'Pirates to the Rescue' series are designed to help children to recognise the virtues of generosity, honesty, politeness and kindness.
