This beautifully written and illustrated story retells a powerful true encounter between a young boy named William and the pirates who landed on the shore at Newport, Rhode Island, in 1710. While his parents are away, a real pirate ship anchors in the cove below Williams house, and a band of mutineers rows ashore. Alone and defenceless, William meets the lawless invaders, who leave him a remarkable and unexpected memento. Vibrant oil paintings capture both the beauty and danger of young Williams world, and the swift narrative recalls those classic tales of good and evil, innocence and experience, imagined deeds and true adventure.
