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.

My granny is a pirate! She's sailed the seven seas. She captured many pirate ships But was always home for tea.
When a family secret about Granny is revealed, we discover all about her fearsome pirate reputation and her swashbuckling ways - from making other rogueish pirates walk the plank to singing sea shanties to her dog, Jolly Roger. Look again at your granny... could she be a pirate too?
