1750, when times were tough and teeth were rotten...
As part of an ancient family tradition, young Atticus Van Tasticus narrowly escapes a life down the coal mines - or worse, going to school - when he gets to choose the gift of a pirate ship from his Grandnan's treasure pile.
It's a choice that will change the course of history - well, OK, his story, at least. Atticus pulls together a rag-tag bunch misfits - AHEM - a tough, brilliant crew, and sets out to wreak havoc - I mean - live a piratin' life.
With little else to his name, Atticus has a taste for adventure, beauty and danger - where any minute might be your last, and your next minute could be your best (...if only they could get off the dock).
