Ill. by Claire Powell. HarperCollins, 2019. ISBN 9780008212995.
Princess Scallywag and the Queen are out on the royal yacht enjoying the fresh air when they are invaded by three stinky, sweaty, no-good pirates waving their swords and determined to take them prisoner. But three stinky, sweaty, no-good pirates are no match for the quick-thinking Queen and the persnickety princess, although it is touch-and-go for a while as they desperately try to save themselves from being made galley slaves, scrubbing the decks and walking the plank!
A sequel to Princess Scallywag and the brave, brave knight, this is a bold adventure story for those who like their princesses feisty, clever, and subversive.
