The Lovereading4Kids comment

Poppy is really looking forward to the summer holiday. She knows she is going to love everything about being by the sea. Especially the chance to be a pirate! But, when it comes to boats, it turns out Poppy doesn’t like them as much as she thought… Is there any boat that will help Poppy find her feet on the water? Easy to read, this is a warm-hearted family story featuring a delightful dog.


Poppy the Pirate Dog (Early Reader) by Liz Kessler

Poppy is very excited to be going on holiday, especially when she is given a skull and crossbones scarf to wear. But life as a pirate dog at the seaside is trickier than she realises...

Liz Kessler, author of the Emily Windsnap books, joins Francesca Simon, Vivian French, Marcus Sedgwick and Sally Gardner in a carefully constructed Early Reader programme with short accessible chapters and full colour illustrations.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

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