Children Ages 8+ • 4.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1965

Playing the part of Oliver Finch, McClure speaks with wide-eyed amazement as he's kidnapped by bloodthirsty pirates. Masterfully creating the crooked voices of Capt. Scratch and his band of buccaneers, the narrator gives the audience a seafaring adventure worth listening to. The plot thickens as the narrator reveals the skeletons in Capt. Scratch's closet and the crew's search for treasure guarded by a ghost who won't rest until someone avenges his death. As Oliver travels the open seas, McClure develops his character from that of a naive boy to an experienced, confident sailor. Young listeners hungry for fast-paced adventure will find this program satisfying. M.P.T. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 94]
