At the fort they pretend to be pirates, engage in a fierce battle, and learn about Roberto Cofresí, Puerto Rico’s most famous pirate. During a game of hide-and-seek, Rosi finds the perfect place to hide—in the stone sentry box that once housed the fort’s lookout guards. Little does she know that the sentry box might be haunted!
