Summary

The seventh book in the brilliant Roald Dahl Funny Prize-winning Barry Loser series. Perfect for listeners and fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Tom Gates and Dennis the Menace.

It’s only a few days into the half-term holidays, and Barry's dad has already had enough of him! He’s packing Barry off to Pirate Camp, the same one he used to be sent to every year. Barry’s not impressed—he’s not a baby anymore, so why should he have to go to a camp for kiddywinkles? But horrible things are afoot at Pirate Camp—it’s been taken over by the villainous Morag, and now its future’s in doubt. There’s only one thing to do: Barry and his new friends Sally Bottom and Renard Dupont have to uncover the hidden treasure of Mogden Island....

Jim Smith is the keelest kids’ book author in the whole wide world amen. He graduated from art school with first class honours (the best you can get) and is the author of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize-winning and best-selling Barry Loser series. He is also the author of Future Ratboy and and the Attack of the Killer Robot Grannies. He lives in London and designs cards and gifts under the name Waldo Pancake.
