Pirate Crime Wave shocks Portland!
A band of marauding pirates is marooned on the Isle of Portland. Their ship the Fortune has mysteriously disappeared and a sinister mermaid accuses Isabel Maydew of witchcraft, sending the Fortune across the seas of time. A cabin boy, a treasure-seeking pirate called Cutlass and Captain Red Pete are lost on the island. Meanwhile the pirate crew are raiding local shops and causing havoc, and a time travelling smuggler moves into Groves Farm. Even the pirate budgie is on the loose.
Before the long, hot summer ends, Isabel has to find the Fortune and send the lost pirates back to the past, where they belong.
