Abstract:

"Al and Owen are back in the Dragon Blood Islands, but this time they are kidnapped by the nasty Captain Blacktooth and equally unfriendly cabin boy Flash. Captain Blacktooth wants to sell the boys to Stanley Spong, but just as he's sailing The Revenge over to town, Snotty Nell and her crew close in for the attack! A long and horrifying battle ensues, and Snotty sails off with Captain Blacktooth's treasure. Angry, and blaming Al and Owen for his misfortune, Captain Blacktooth decides to maroon the boys on Snake Island, where they will no doubt starve to death. Here, however, they come across Grenda, Snotty Nell's daughter, and they convince her to smuggle them aboard The Tormenter so they can make it into town. In town, they finally find Captain Gunner, who is very happy to see them. He wants to sail to Sabre Island to see Mahoot's grandfather, who looks after the swimming elephants, as well as search Alleric Castle for treasure. Alleric Castle, Al and Owen discover, was once the home of Prince Alleric, who lived long ago and was last seen chasing the meanest pirate in the world, Vicious Victor. The pirate had stolen the prince's magical sabre, which gave the prince power to fly anywhere in the world. Al is intrigued, seeing as he and the prince share the same name... When Al and Owen finally get a chance to search Alleric Castle, they find more than they bargained for...but before they can explore this further, they find themselves being transported back home. Al and Owen both know they will have to return to the Dragon Blood Islands to find out more." --Publisher description.
