The Lovereading4Kids comment

Action-packed adventure propels this short and easy to read book forward at pace and will be hugely satisfying to emerging readers. Charlie is football mad, as is most of his family. But when his brother Bobby develops a passion for pirates he is lost to kick-ups in favour of digging for treasure. Bobby’s passion also leads to a terrifying adventure and Charlie fears he’ll lose him forever.

Synopsis

Pirates Ahoy! by Sophie Smiley

Charlie's football-mad family swap goalposts for the seaside, and her brother's on a quest for a pirate adventure. It's all hands on deck as cannonballs fly and damsels in distress are rescued. But will Bobby ever find his hidden treasure? And will Charlie ever win him back to the football pitch?

Reviews

Action-packed adventure propels this short and easy to read book forward at a pace that will be hugely satisfying to emerging readers. Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading4kids Splendid but modest short books... The stories are directly and pointedly aimed at their own audience and skilfully balance between simplicity and the avoidance of condescension... Highly recommended for lots of reasons. The School Librarian (Summer 2009) Smiley's style is warm and true to life, and should gain her plenty of fans. Books for Keeps
