The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age 7+ Reading Age 7+. The Pitt Street Pirates want to find the treasure and they want to find it quickly. Led by Captain Roger Redbeard (who doesn’t actually have a red beard) they need to build a boat, find some water and set sail. But things aren’t as simple as that. How things go right and then wrong several times over before they end up being very miraculously right and landing the gang with a very substantial amount of treasure is a rip roaring read.

Synopsis

Pitt Street Pirates by Terry Deary

Interest Age 7+ Reading Age 7+. Top comedy by the author of Horrible Histories. The Pitt Street Pirates are out on a treasure hunt, with their trusty parrot-cat Minnie. Roger Redbeard is determined to be a pirate. And with his friends Ellie and Sniffle (not to mention Minnie the cat) he seems well on his way to working out the clues to Ruby Rose's treasure hunt. But can they find the right treasure? An adventure not to be missed! With a reading age of 7, it is particularly suitable for dyslexic, reluctant and struggling readers.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
