June 2016 Debut of the Month

In a Nutshell: pirates – penguins – enchantments

Eddy Stone and the Epic Holiday Mash-Up is an epic story indeed, and possibly the most inventive piratical comedy-fantasy-adventure you’ll read this year. It starts with Eddy finding a pirate captain in his gran’s bath. But, before you know it the two of them, plus a nice shopkeeper thereafter known as the Crew, and a penguin are on board their own pirate ship, the Codcake, and embarked on a treasure hunt that leads them from one fantastical place and adventure to another. All the while pursued by the properly nasty Barracuda Bill!. As quests go, it’s a cracker and very, very funny too. Polished and very original, this is Simon Cherry’s debut novel and hopefully the first of many. ~ Andrea Reece

For more zany and satisfying pirate adventures, don’t miss The Unlikely Adventures of Mabel Jones while David Solomon’s prize-winning My Brother is a Superhero is also fast, funny and well-written.

  • Daniel Bisland, age 8 - 'I give it 10/10. I recommend it to 8+ readers who love adventure! I found the book funny and liked the poem (Poem for the Captain) and the song (The Captain’s Seasick Sea Shanty).'
  • Lewis Briggs, age 9 - 'This book is excellent! If I could rate it, it would be a 10. I can't wait to read (if there is) the next book because I have a feeling it would be even better (if that's possible!)'

Synopsis

Eddy Stone and the Epic Holiday Mash-Up by Simon Cherry

When Eddy finds a pirate in his gran’s bath, his miserable summer holiday becomes a treasure hunt! Setting sail in a ship-shaped shed, crewed by an old lady and a grumpy penguin, what could possibly stop their quest for booty? (Apart from the world’s most evil shopkeeper, a man-eating beast, and the maddest, baddest villain in all the seven seas.)

Reviews

'A charming, surreal and batty trip into a world of Pythonesque Pirates , buried treasure and total silliness. Lovely' - Lenny Henry

'Oh how I wish the wonderfully told adventures of this unforgettable pirate and the boy who befriends him had existed when I was young. I shall pretend I still am and read them again and again' - Stephen Fry
