Synopsis

Cats Ahoy! by Peter Bently

When Alfonso the cat hears there's a boat coming into harbour carrying its largest ever catch, he hatches a plan. It's brave! It's bold! And it involves a ghost pirate ship, some rather gullible fishermen, and cats LOTS of cats. With an infectious rhyming text and laugh-out-loud illustrations, this book is set to become a firm favourite for fans of life on the high seas.

Reviews

"Cats marauding as ghost pirates to steal fishy bounty from lily-livered humans: what more do you want from a funny book?" Roald Dahl Funny Prize Chair of Judges, author Michael Rosen

Praise for Shark in the Dark:

"A tremendously funny rhyming story, with a biting twist!" - Child Care magazine

"There's everything you could possibly want in a tale: adventure, knee-knocking fear, daring plots, come-uppance and happy endings . . . a story that couldn't be improved in any way at all. " - Bookbag.co.uk
