Patch is a ship's cat who lives aboard The Golden Earring. Along with her friends, Cutlass the parrot and Monty the monkey, Patch frequently gets the pirate crew out of trouble - although they never realize quite how much she does to save their skins . . .
In their first adventure, the pirate crew discover a treasure map and set out to find where X marks the spot. But little do they know that the treasure is cursed and it's up to Captain Cat to stop them, before it's too late!
Illustrated by the bestselling Kate Pankhurst, Captain Cat and the Treasure Map is a laugh-out-loud piratical adventure from Sue Mongredien, perfect for newly confident readers or to enjoy together.
