There are rainy day adventures galore for Florentine and Pig as they set out across a make-believe ocean in search of the missing Ever-So-Sparkly Button. Riding the waves and finding the treasure are made all the more fun after a scrumptious picnic of all kinds of very tasty food. Hungry readers can share the picnic too by following the recipes including in the back of the book.


Florentine and Pig and the Lost Pirate Treasure by Eva Katzler

Florentine and Pig are stuck in the house on a terribly gloomy day, but they're not gloomy - they're brimming with inspiration for entertaining things to do. Soon they're sailing the high seas of their imaginations in a pirate ship, and it seems that Pig is very, very good at finding hidden treasure. With recipes and a craft activity for families to enjoy together, these books encourage creative play and a love of reading. Join in the fun with Florentine and Pig!

Florentine and Pig have their own website full of delicious recipes to try and crafts to make - Fruitilcious Topple Towers sound delicious and the Twinkly Jam Jar Lanterns would look lovely in the garden!

There is also a Florentine and Pig facebook page for more news!

About the Author

Eva Katzler

Florentine and Pig is the brainchild of singer-songwriter Eva Katzler. Working with children of all ages in summer camps, Eva quickly became aware that kids had forgotten - or had never known - the simple pleasures of getting a little messy with their hands. She devised the delightful partnership of Florentine and Pig as a way of encouraging children (and adults!) to rediscover the joys of making things together.

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.
