Synopses & Reviews
Set sail for a hairy adventure.
Sure, pirates are rough and tough and stinky. But after one particularly rowdy birthday party, even Backbeard must admit that it's time for him to buy a new suit.
With the local clothing shop out of all the traditional pirate garb, even a pirate as ornery as Backbeard can't always get what he wants. Backbeard's unusual new birthday suit will either make him the laughingstock of the whole ship, or the most stylish pirate to ever raise the Jolly Roger.
