Synopsis

Hairy Mole and the Precious Islands by Chris Owen

Yet again, Hairy Mole and his terrifyingly cut-throat pirate crew take to the high seas - this time to rescue cousin Furry Mole from the clutches (and the knives and forks) of three outrageously wicked witches. On the way they discover stones that smell of Brussels sprouts, football-playing cockroaches and a crystal cavern guarded by something with really smelly breath. Onwards they battle through slime and thunder storms, determined to find, if not their fortunes, then plenty of exotic jams. This is laugh-out-loud fun with Hairy Mole and his silly pirate crew! As with all four titles in the Hairy Mole series, this book is overflowing with excitement and adventure, the illustrations practically leaping off the page and the text struggling to stay still. The playful layouts offer a reduced amount of text on each page, making it even more suitable for newly independent readers.

About the Author

When Chris Owen lived in Italy by the sea, he dreamt of being a pirate. He didn't dream of being Hairy Mole exactly, but that's how it turned out. Chris has also written a number of sitcoms and books for grown-ups.
