Synopsis

Hairy Mole and the Precious Islands by Chris Owen

The third book featuring Hairy Mole and his bold pirate crew: Belch Pickle, the twins, Crevice and Pitt, Guff and Mr. Bogey, the first mate who has a cricket bat for a leg. This time Hairy Mole has a serious job to do. His younger cousin Furry Mole has got himself into a spot of bother, and Hairy and his crew must find a way to save Furry. There's no time for fun and games! No time to learn the rules of cock-roach football, or to lose at poker to T-towel the cat. This is serious. It involves three time hags (eager to turn into big-time witches), secret tunnels, precious gems, kings and real pirate goings on. The Hairy Mole Series is published by Ransom Publishing, specialists in books for reluctant and struggling readers. The stories are for newly independent readers, all featuring Hairy Mole and his pirate crew. The playful layouts offer a reduced amount of text on each page - perfect also for reluctant readers. The series is aimed at children aged 7 - 10 with a reading age of 7 - 8.

About the Author
