When crazed chicken pirates attack, what should a book-obsessed buccaneer to do? Write a self-help manual, of course! Henry and the Buccaneer Bunnies, a band of carefree, book-loving seafarers, live a life untroubled by piratical concerns. Until, one day, a note comes ashore in a bottle, bearing the ominous message: 'We're coming to steal all yer loot.' His timbers shivered and his bones thoroughly rattled, Henry sets to work on a manual for use should the enemy strike. But will it work on crazed chicken pirates? Yes, indeed! Using every trick in the book - his own - Henry defeats the feathery rogues, and proves that no enemy is a match for extensive research and forward planning! This is a swashbuckling pirate adventure - that promotes love of reading too! This fun read-aloud will have lots of appeal for boys and reluctant readers. It is a sequel to "Henry and the Crazed Chicken Pirates" (9780763624491).
