The Lovereading4Kids comment
Winner of the 6 and under category, Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2011.
A swashbuckling tale of pirate plunder, derring do and a huge haul of haddock!
"These two books are master classes in how to write and how to draw funny," said Roald Dahl Funny Prize chair of judges, author Michael Rosen. Click hereto see the winner of the age 7-14 category.
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.
"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
