One of Anthony Bartholomew’s dads loves the morning paper, but some mornings it’s stolen from outside their front door. Anthony overhears something about “newspaper pirates” and wanting to protect their newspaper, sets out to search for clues. Anthony turns up a sword in the building recycling room, but the laundry room is a dead end. The pirates don’t fall for the trap, and fingerprints turn out not to be so useful. Sometimes, when you can’t beat them, you instead become their king. Anthony becomes the King of the Newspaper Pirates and keeps the newspapers safe. Landlubber beware!
