A refreshing new look for this beloved classic!

Because her noodle pudding is so delicious, a band of pirates kidnaps Grandma and her parrot, Oliver. When her granddaughter Melissa tries to save them, she gets captured too. Life aboard the pirate ship isn't so bad - Grandma makes lots of noodle puddings and Melissa helps to sail the ship. But the pirates are mean and nasty. At last Melissa comes up with a plan: they'll stop trying to get away from the pirates, and let the pirates get away from them.

Join Grandma, Melissa and Oliver for a rollicking adventure as they take to the high seas with three hungry, savage pirates.
