Summary from Egmont   

‘We must find out what the exciting THING is! I bet that it’s TREASURE!’

P.J. and the Moon Hare are off on a new adventure, battling pirates. Accompanied by P.J.’s dragon (who’s called Sandra even though he’s a boy) can P.J. and the Moon Hare stop the horrible feathered villain Foul from stealing Uncle Julian’s treasure?

Nayuleska's thoughts
This was hilarious! I've never had either but the Moon Hare reminded of a younger brother. He is highly annoying, does everything PJ doesn't want him to...and occasionally does or says something extraordinary. I felt sorry for PJ's mother because the Moon Hare eggs on her scatterbrain brother when he doesn't need any encouragement! The real enemy had me in stitches with his antics and when the Moon Hare took his welfare into consideration. There was the odd part that was too weird for me, but overall this is a funny 9/10 read.
