The Lovereading4Kids comment
Hugely successful, internationally bestselling and multi award-winning author Val McDermid writes her first picture book for children. This wonderfully cuddly granny started life as a cabin girl and now sails the seven seas as a redoubtable pirate seeing off her enemies in no mean fashion! Granny’s exploits are recounted in a gloriously bouncy text which is perfectly matched by ebullient illustrations. A must-have book for all pirate fans.
