Yes, that's PIRATE detective, so expect your nearly five hours of listening to be salty indeed, and liberally sprinkled with sea-farin' phrases such as "shiver me timbers." Pirate hats off to Robert Llewellyn, who stays remarkably in character. Llewellyn also entertains by creating a supporting cast of colorful characters (like Sam's cook, Ho, and his prime suspect, the Scarlet Winkle), whom Sam encounters as he unravels the mystery of who stole the Pointy-Head Lighthouse. This audiobook will entertain young pirates who like a good yarn or a puzzle to solve; it's chock full of puns and silly characters and situations to tickle the funny bone.
