It's a blustery night and Max wants to cuddle up with a cozy story. Something about cats would suit him. But his big sister, Ellery, has other ideas, and she decides to delve into the deliciously wicked story of the pirate Jose Gaspar. Together, Max and Ellery venture into Gaspar's creepy world, and Max doesn't like it one bit--until he sneaks up behind Ellery and scares her into slamming the book shut! This hilarious and spooky book illustrates two of life's important lessons: never pick on your sensitive little brother, and always choose a nice story about cats when you're home alone.
