Meet Francesca Spaghetti and her twin sister Poppy Noodle. Two ordinary girls leading ordinary lives until a wise, old lady showed them the way in to The Magic Meadow - an enchanted world where anything, it seems, is possible. As if that’s not enough, they discover that they have been somehow granted quite-extraordinary Magic Powers when a drawing they make unexpectedly ‘comes to life’ and a desperate pirate girl called Patty pleads with them to help rescue her father who’s been kidnapped by the fearsome Big Beard, the most wicked pirate ever to roam the seven seas.
What can they do? What should they do? They hesitate, afraid. Finally, they decide that it is their duty to use their Magic abilities to help others in difficulty.This courageous choice leads them not only to the warm, palm-fringed shores of a distant tropical island but also into exciting and perilous situations which require all their courage and ingenuity. When an opportunity arises to make good their escape from the pirate’s lair in a tiny sailing boat, they and their new friends find themselves helplessly looking up at Big Beard’s hulking ship, the Naughty Starfish, bristling from stem to stern with gigantic cannons that are all pointed at them…
Unless they can come up with a brilliant idea it looks like they won’t be going home any time soon. Suddenly, from the big ship’s quarterdeck the command is given to open fire…

Beautifully written, light hearted and told with clever, good humor, this is a story that you and your family will want to read time and time again.
