Synopsis

The Pirate House by Rebecca Patterson

No one knows who lives in that house on the corner, but when all those seagulls fly onto the roof, Sam Turner says it must be pirates! In fact, Sam Turner tells his friends all sorts of things: that they mustn't look at the pirate washing or they will turn into jellyfish, that at night the whole house glows like an aquarium, and that if the door ever opens a huge wave will come out. And that's not the half of it. According to Sam, not only are there pirates living on their street, but a family of monsters are moving into Number 2! Surely Sam Turner is just a little boy with a big imagination ...or is he? A brilliantly funny new book from the creator of THE DEEP END and NOT ON A SCHOOL NIGHT.

About the Author

Rebecca grew up in Bolton, and first studied Fashion. After graduating, she worked at an assortment of jobs, including being an classroom assistant in a primary school, while sending out manuscripts for picture books. Once her own children had started school, Rebecca began an MA in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art and had her first picture books commissioned at the end of the course, including THE DEEP END (published by Macmillan) and MY BIG SHOUTING DAY. Rebecca's work is inspired by her own childhood and her children's lives, with stories often starting as games or something made up in the back of a car to amuse a child. She lives in Cambridge.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
