Product description

Everyone knows that the Big Hill is full of gold, and now the islanders are intent on cutting the top off the hill and making themselves rich. Jessie and Jake are determined to save the Big Hill, but what can they do? A plan is needed – fast. Could the answer lie with the ghost of Grania O’Malley, the pirate queen? You don’t know what you can do until you try… A brilliant adventure which fuses an ecological message with a supernatural dimension, written by Michael Morpurgo.
