The Lovereading4Kids comment

A fabulous swash buckling collection of ten pirate tales full of the requisite adventure, daring, knavery and bloodshed. Chris Mould’s illustrations cleverly capture all the romance and menace of the pirate world as they match stories he has written himself as well as adapted excerpts from classic pirate tales such as Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island.

Reviews

Praise for Dust 'n Bones and Fangs 'n' Fire:

The art of storytelling pervades this textures tapestry of tales with a twist -- The Bookseller

A great primer of ghost stories for older children and younger teens. -- The Bookbag

Brilliantly written and illustrated with cool and colourful drawings. -- CBBC Newsround

Entertaining and commendably presented anthology of short tales of seafaring, treasure hunting, and their consequences. -- Bookbag

Every few years, a book comes along which is an absolute stand-out in its genre and this just such a one. A wonderfully varied collection of self penned and traditional sea stories. Beautifully written, beautifully illustrated and beautifully produced, this is a book to read and escape to other worlds, with illustrations to pore over and to treasure. A wonderful book - don't miss it. -- School Librarian
