The Pirates of Brownsea Island’ is the second of the ‘Amazing Adventures of Scary Bones the Skeleton.’ 

In this adventure Scary Bones, Sasha and Ben are captured by Captain Cross Bones and those baddest of bad pirates, Pillage and Plunder. The pirates sail in the ghostly bad-ship The Naughty Two-saw-us and they are after old Captain Grow Bag’s treasure which is buried on Brownsea Island. Can our brave heroes, helped by the Red String and the island’s Red Squirrels, keep the treasures of Brownsea Island safe for us all to enjoy for ever. 

In all of his adventures Scary Bones is accompanied by a magical and rather strange piece of red string, which is no less brave than Scary Bones himself, and indeed rescues and saves him and the children in many scary situations.

Every Scary Bones book comes with a mysterious sealed envelope which cannot be opened until the very end of the story. This adds excitement and mystery to the stories which both children and adults love and share.
