One night, young Tom is awoken by noises outside his house. He peeps out of the window and what should he see but PIRATES. And stranger still – they’re GIRL PIRATES stealing the front of his house!

Tom and the girl-pirates make a surprise attack and are soon off on the seas once more with the treasure!

A lone bird sits in a big tree, merrily singing its tune to the world. But soon it will be joined by a friend, and then another, and another . . .

Will Mrs Vickers’ ever be united with her favourite pair of frilly pink knickers?
