In the year 1704, Captain Bones Bilgewater’s pirate ship sank–and Bilgewater was never seen again. 300 years later, while on a field trip to the New Metropolitan Maritime Museum, pirate aficionado and sixth-grader, Obie Tucker, discovers that she and Bones lack the same virtue: self-control. Just when Obie is about to be sent home from the only field trip she’s ever been interested in, an eccentric museum curator presents Obie with a gift from Bones Bilgewater himself.
