“A good pirate fights back," said Jasper, "and a good pirate finds treasure.”
Caroline Carlson, Magic Marks the Spot

“If you want to know the truth, pirates can be even sillier than Miss Pimm’s girls, although they are not nearly as cruel.”

“However, many a pirate has tried to make his name on the High Seas by searching for famous, long-lost treasures. These include the fabled wreck of the good ship Petunia, the infamous magic stash of the Enchantress of the Northlands, and, of course, the toothbrush collection of Blackjaw Hawkins.”
