Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs - Smugglers Bay! by Giles Andreae

Giles Andreae and Russell Ayto's super-fun Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs: Smugglers Bay! Captain Flinn is Puffin's favourite pirate. He has swashbuckled his way through THREE pirate dinosaur adventures and lived to tell the tale. But now he faces his toughest challenge yet. Captain T Rex and his pirate crew are smuggling sausages out of a secret cove and their favourites are CHILDREN CHIPOLATAS - gulp! Watch out Captain Flinn! But this time, the Captain T Rex has bitten off more than he can chew and wily Captain Flinn and his friends soon teach him a lesson he won't forget. Giles Andreae is an award-winning children's author and has written both fiction titles and best-selling picture books. His picture book, The Lion Who Wanted to Dance, won The Federation of Children's Book Award in the best picture book category in 1998. However, he is probably most famous as the creator of the phenomenally successful Purple Ronnie, Britain's favourite stickman. Giles lives in Notting Hill with his wife and three young children. Russell has illustrated books by prolific children's authors such as Ian Whybrow and Cressida Cowell. The Witch's Children was shortlisted for the Greenaway last year and this year The Witch's Children and the Queen is on the Smarties shortlist. Russell lives in Penzance, Cornwall.
