A riotous adventure of pirates (and good manners) on the high seas, now in a graphic novel. There never lived a boy more polite than Horrendo. Cursed at birth, he can speak only kind words while everyone else in his village spews revolting insults. But as his twelfth birthday arrives, Horrendo's very good manners are about to get him into a heap of trouble. Each year, pirates come to the village and abduct all the twelve-year-old boys as their slaves. Despite training in Herculean Headlocks, Rude Remarks, and Oar Throwing, Horrendo and his friends are worked to the bone aboard the ship. Horrendo endures with typical good grace, winning over the pirates' stomachs with his delectable cooking--but enraging the heartless Captain. When Horrendo hatches a cunning escape plan, a hazardous journey to a deserted island ensues. In the end, teamwork prevails, and the boys return home, forever changed, with their new pirate friends. Adapted from Anna Fienberg's acclaimed story, this deliciously entertaining graphic novel sparkles with wicked wordplay, fierce fights, and colorful characters. Remy Simard's action-packed illustrations, bursting with energy and humor, make Horrendo's Curse a delight for readers .
