Custardly Wart: Pirate (Third Class)
At the Dankmarsh School for poor orphans, the children sleep four to a bed and exist on watery porridge. Teachers don’t last long, and so when a new one arrives they are intrigued, especially since he has an eyepatch, a huge moustache and calls himself the Captain.
Ditherus Wart: (Accidental)
Ditherus Wart does NOT want to be a gladiator or go to gladiator school, especially if has to face large, hairy warriors who wish to chop him in small pieces.
Honesty Wart: Witch Hunter!
Life for Honesty and his sisters Mercy and Patience is not a bundle of laughs. His family are strict Puritans and singing, dancing and anything that sounds like fun is forbidden. Life, Honesty thinks, can’t get much worse when Christmas is cancelled by order of the government.
