Scurvy Goonda Rating: 5


Author: Chris McCoy

Lots of kids have imaginary friends…when they’re 5! But Ted Merrit’s imaginary friend arrived a little later in life. At 7 years old, Ted met Scurvy Goonda, a bacon-obssessed pirate who has stuck by him 24 hours a day ever since. Ted is now 14, and his conversations with the invisible pirate are starting to raise a few eyebrows.


The Crazy Kid

Kids at school think Ted is a weirdo, especially his crush, Carolina Waltz. She’s popular, and Ted, well, he’s on the other end of the popularity totem pole. Even Ted’s job is affected by Scurvy, who can’t keep his greedy little hands off the raw bacon in the meat department.


The Disappearance

Ted has had enough! To be a normal kid, Ted has to give Scurvy the boot. He starts wearing a patch that’s supposed to cure his overactive imagination. Soon, Scurvy’s body is covered in green pustules! But it doesn’t stop there. Kids from all over the world claim that their imaginary friends (known as abstract companions) are turning green as well. In no time, the abstract companions disappear…except for Scurvy.


Middlemost

Ted gets blamed for Scurvy’s destruction of all the bacon packages at his work. When Ted sneaks in to confront his pirate pal, his world is suddenly turned upside down. Now the fate of Scurvy and his home planet, Middlemost, lies in Ted’s hands.


The Bottom Line

The cover of Scurvy Goonda by Chris McCoy does not do the book justice. It’s a fabulous and creative story that shows just how imaginative this first-time author really is. He invents an entirely different world, home to a mishmash of the most unusual creatures. You’ll meet everything from Plandas (part panda, part bonsai tree) to giant cockatoo skeletons. Scurvy Goonda is totally worth reading!
