Book Review: Captain Crabclaw's Crew by Frances Watts - Reviewed by (04 Feb 2012)

What a charming tale of a Pirate Captain who get's some interesting applicants when he advertises for a crew to go off plundering the seas for gold to fill his treasure chests.

What he ends up with are a motley crew of animals who despite assuring him they are fearsome (as asked for in the job description), their chosen victims only tremble in fits of laughter and they are sent home with their tails, quite literally, between their legs.

All is not lost however as the crew come up with a cunning plan to help their captain get his gold.
