First edition.
Pirate Captain Rottingbones and his crew need breakfast. But these pirates can't have just any ordinary, they need nice, fresh WORDS. And where better to get them than stealing them straight off the pages of all kinds of books? But when Captain Rottingbones and his cronies go after the Word Wizard and her extra delicious words that they steal from her extra juicy stories, they've finally gone too far...because not only does the Word Wizard believe words are precious things that belong in stories, but she also has a weapon stronger than any sword--a mighty pen. Susan Cooper, author of the acclaimed Dark Is Rising fantasy series, teams up with renowned illustrator Steven Kellogg to create a swashbuckling adventure that celebrates the power of reading.
