For Mom’s birthday, Tim and Suzy are planning a special pirate play. Who would have thought that there would be more drama than the show. The excitement starts with the neighbor’s missing pet tortoise, and, then Dad’s birthday present for Mom is lost in the commotion. Are pirates involved? Can the birthday celebration be saved?
