"The map!" Bert exclaimed. "The map to the Piggott Treasure! This could be the answer to everything! Yessssssssss!"
'Piggotts In Peril' begins with the shy and sensitive Bert Piggott accidentally finding the map to pirate treasure hidden many years ago by his great great great great grandfather. At first a quest for untold wealth seems the answer to all his problems but getting it means bringing along his scheming, ratbag family.
Little does he know that what lies ahead are problems that even the pessimistic Bert could never imagine: the terror of turbulent seas aboard a "borrowed" boat, capture by pirates, being marooned on the Isle of the Dead, and more. Add to this mix the antics of his best friend (the child actress) Antigone Attwood and Bert's feeling of hopelessness soon turns to utter despair.
'Piggotts In Peril' is a warm, adventure comedy about the origins of the universe, the evolution of humankind - and pirate treasure.
