Pirate by Helen GreatheadBig Jobs! is a new narrative non-fiction series covering popular historical topics through a variety of colourful jobs in a down-to-earth, readable style, with plenty of toilet humour! Each chapter features a double page fact spread and there is a glossary at the end. In Pirate you are sailing to Jamaica when you are captured by a scurvy crew of pirates. Experience what it's like to live on a pirate ship and to follow their ways! Life will be tough and punishments hard, but it's not all bad news. There's friendship among the men, and there's treasure to be had, too! You'll find it's a big job being a pirate.
'Designed to appeal to that ever-elusive group: reluctant reders and boys of seven years and over, this is just one in a fun interactive series of books focusing on what kids really want to be when they grow up.'
'Written in an accessible style with humorous illustrations, they are great for engaging reluctant readers as well as educating them about a historical period.'
