Now, Maeron wants revenge.

Furious at being outwitted by Conor and Roland, he plans to exact his revenge by going to the Human World and capturing the twins’ mother. Conor and Roland must travel back through The Way, by a different route this time, to reach their mother before Maeron does.

Along the way they meet up with two sea elves, and with their new friends they must overcome one danger after another, with Maeron in pursuit all the way.

“I just want to say how much my grandchildren (and their friends at sleepovers) enjoy the book Pirates Don’t Read. This much loved story book is dog eared, has dirty fingerprints ALL over it baby dribble but coated with chuckles, laughter and precious memories, If I had a dollar for every time I have sat with my grandchildren and their friends on and around my lap to read this book I would be one rich nanna lol It fires up their little minds, they play act to it but mostly shout the roof down with ‘PIRATES DON’T READ’. Thank you Robin, from the bottom of my heart.”
