Rollicking rhyming couplets tell this fantasy pirate adventure.

Dozing off during a story, Tim and his Ted find themselves far away and in great danger as they face ferocious pirates with eye-patches, clashing cutlasses and more in their battle to rescue the treasure chest. They see off all dangers bravely and everything is ship shape again by home time.


Tim, Ted and the Pirates by Ian Whybrow

It's story time at school, when all of a sudden the classroom fills with water and Tim and Ted find themselves taking part in a swashbuckling nautical adventure. Can they rescue stolen treasure from the pirates before Tim's mum comes to collect him at home time? This is a picture book adventure from the author of "Where's Tim's Ted?".


'A witty and wholly satisfying fantasy that rattles along at a great pace.'

'Little Wolf ranks among the most engaging animal characters in modern children's writing.'
