San Francisco, California- September 15, 2009 - Immedium, Inc. proudly announces the publication of the children's picture book Baltazar and the Flying Pirates. Written by Oliver Chin and illustrated by Justin Roth, this tale appeals to kids who love the boundless excitement of theme parks and the timeless allure of pirates.
Ages ago, Greybeard hid his treasure chest from his fellow swashbucklers. Ever since, the beautiful Captain and her infamous Corsairs have searched for it but their map missed the key piece. Tonight Redlocks recruits Greybeard's descendant, young Baltazar, to help locate the long lost riches.
The boy points the way, but now the bustling amusement park "Treasure Island" sits atop the buried booty. So join the crew of the flying Cutlass on a wild roller coaster to discover where "X" marks the spot, and whether Baltazar and his mates can strike pay dirt before their tickets expire!

Colorfully illustrated in the style of an animated film, this tongue-in-cheek adventure features a legendary cast that includes Hook, Long John Silver, and Black Bart. With fond memories of summer vacations, pirate lovers of all ages will enjoy this ultimate joy ride.
