The Lovereading4Kids comment

Pirates are always popular subjects for picture books and by ingeniously combining a pirate story with a pair of yucky smelly feet, Mark Chambers and Lucy Rowland have upped the satisfaction levels even higher. Poor Pirate Pete’s feet are so stinky that his crew are finally driven to chuck him overboard (though within swimming distance of a desert island). They happily take him back though when his pongy feet turn out to be an effective shark repellent. The story is told in vigorous rhyme – ‘Standing slightly upwind, the pirates all grinned, “Three cheers for Pete’s foul-smelling feet’ – and the illustrations are full of fun too, look out for the sock hidden on each page. And if all this isn’t enough there’s a free set of scratch and sniff stickers too. Pooh! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Pirate Pete and His Smelly Feet by Lucy Rowland

This spick and span crew of pirates have had enough of Pete's pongy feet! So he's been ordered to walk the plank. But it turns out that hungry sharks didn't like the smell of cheese either. What will the pirates do without Pete's feet to keep those snappy sharks away? Have fun sticking the cheesy scratch and sniff stickers to the pirates in this riotous, rhyming romp!

Pirate Pete and His Smelly Feet is the first Macmillan picture book for Lucy Rowland and Mark Chambers. A fun, fast-paced story illustrated with vibrant colour and humour, and with a very smelly ending!
