See Inside Noisy Pirate Ships by Rob Lloyd Jones


See Inside Noisy Pirate Ships by Rob Lloyd Jones

This classic flap book in the See Inside series is brought to life with a new sound panel. Venture onto the high seas in this illustrated book that explores the history of the pirates and bloodthirsty buccaneers of the 18th century. Sounds help bring the pictures to life. Children won't be able to resist pushing the buttons to hear the noises, including cannons being fired, a sword fight on deck, a ship on fire, pirates cackling, a tavern brawl, a sinking ship and a spooky ghost-pirate laugh to end on. The book contains over seventy flaps, which children can lift to delve further into the world of pirates, parrots, pieces of eight and barrels of rum. In addition to being hugely entertaining, this book is also immensely informative and is packed with accurate historical information.


'Perfectly pitched for Key Stage 2, a mix of facts, humour and novelty flaps...This series is proof that the right non-fiction still sells - The Bookseller; 'Another one to look forward to from Usborne is 'See Inside Noisy Pirate Ships'. This is a flap book where many of the detailed illustrations lift up to reveal even more about life as pirate on the high seas. The sound buttons at the side add to the action with cannons being fired, sword fights on the deck and a sinister pirate's cackle as you walk the plank! - Warwick Books Newsletter; 'A super collection of information books from Usborne, which really engage the reader by providing interesting information, colourful graphics and plenty of flaps with yet more information' - Parents in Touch'

About the Author

Rob Lloyd Jones

Rob never wanted to be a writer when he grew up. He wanted to be a fireman. Or a polar explorer. Or a deep-sea diver. And sometimes a pirate too. But, when it came down to it, he didn’t much like fire, or ice, or sharks, or even swords. So he decided to write about them instead. Since then, he’s written several books on subjects ranging from animals at war to the history of Islam. He loves it. But he still dreams about being a fireman.
