Synopsis

The Night Pirates by Peter Harris

A much-loved adventure on the high seas from Peter Harris and Deborah Allwright. Perfect for every reader who loved Pirates Love Underpants and The Pirates Next Door. One night, young Tom is awoken by noises outside his house. He peeps out of the window and what should he see but PIRATES. And stranger still - they're GIRL PIRATES stealing the front of his house! Tom joins their adventure across the high seas to an island where some rather lazy and silly grown-up pirates are guarding their treasure. Not very successfully! Tom and the girl-pirates make a surprise attack and are soon off on the seas once more with the treasure! This swashbuckling pirate story from Peter Harris and Deborah Allwright has become a modern-day classic. Great fun to read-aloud and entertaining for both boys and girls, The Night Pirates is a bedtime story to inspire the imagination of kids aged 3 and up. Peter Harris was born in London in 1933. He has written for television, radio and children's comics. His picture books include Have You Seen Max? and Bottomley the Brave. Deborah Allwright has made a dramatic impact on the picture book scene since the publication of The Night Pirates. Her other wonderful books include Hooray for Knickers and The Witch with an Itch.
