The Lovereading4Kids comment
Interest Age 5-8 A swashbuckling adventure from TV star Tony Robinson. Ben is a pirate at heart who is not at all happy when he discovers on his first day at school that there are no walk-the-plank and cutlass classes. That is until Ben's class mate, short John Silver arrives. These two boys get up to all sorts of skulduggery and before long the school finds they have a mutiny on their hands. With plenty of full-colour illustrations throughout, limited text on every page with clear short sentences throughout.

Skulduggery by Tony Robinson
Ben arrives at pirate school ready and raring to learn all about how to be the best pirate he can be! But instead of lessons in walking the plank, cutlass-swinging and singing sea shanties, the Headmistress seems more focused on teaching business and economics. Ben can't have that! With the help of comrade-in-arms Short John Silver, an uprising is planned...
High quality cream paper and easy to read special font ensure a smooth read for all.
