Captain Firebeard may be the terror of the high seas and the ability to make honest seafaring folk shake like jelly but Pirate Girl Molly isn’t afraid of him.

This tale of feisty Molly and how she ‘bests’ Captain Firebeard beautifully written by Funke and illustrated by Kerstin Meyer will have lots of little girls heading to sea for adventures of their own.

Synopsis

Pirate Girl by Cornelia Funke

Ferocious Captain Firebeard may think that he and the cruel crew of the Horrible Haddock rule the high seas – but he hasn’t reckoned on a small, daring girl called Molly. And he certainly should never have kidnapped her!

Molly soon proves to be sharper and quicker than any of the pirate gang’s cutlasses. And before long, Firebeard must face his comeuppance – the fury of her fearsome mum!

Perfect for bringing out the fighting spirit in the smallest of pirates!
