A sixth Little Wolf novel featuring this number one cub and pack of friends as they have the pirate adventure of a lifetime!
Following the success of the Little Wolf series internationally plus the animated film shown at Christmas 2002, a sixth Little Wolf novel will be welcomed by his many fans. Featuring all Little Wolf’s friends – Yeller, Stubbs, Normus, and that pesky little brother Smellybreff in his sailor suit. Little Wolf is a pirate cheef [sic] in this new adventure, and he is after the treasure left by a long-lost relative: Blackfur the Backbiter. But a contemporary pirate called Cap’n Froshus is determined to find the treasure too and this Cap’n Froshus has eyes that hypnotise and a strange peppery smell. Could it Little Wolf’s old adversary Mr Twister the Fox – yo ho ho and a bobble of glug, it could be!
