Description - Swashbuckler by James Moloney
A special reissue of the much-loved 1996 CBCA Book of the Year for Younger Readers Unhand that innocent young traveller, you blaggard, or I'll run you through and leave your carcass here for the birds to pick clean. Meet Anton. Kids think he's a fruit loop because he talks like a pirate. But new boy, Peter McNeill, needs a friend and the boys soon discover they have the same problem - their dads. Peter's father has gambled away all their money, but Anton's dad . . . now that's a different story. Some things just have to be faced up to and it takes courage, it takes a hero who laughs at danger, a warrior willing to battle dragons, it takes a swashbuckler! A rip-roaring adventure from one of Australia's master storytellers.
