Pirates Aren't Scared of the Dark! by Maudie Powell-Tuck


Pirates Aren't Scared of the Dark! by Maudie Powell-Tuck

Freddie's sleeping outside in his amazing pirate tent. No fairies allowed! he yells when his pesky little sister, Poppy, tries to join him. But when Freddie's torch goes out, and there's a rustle rustle rustle in the dark, he doesn't feel quite so brave after all...With gorgeous illustrations from Alison Edgson (Me and My Dad! and I Want My Mummy!), this wonderfully warm, sibling story has a fantastic tongue-in-cheek twist. A children's book celebrating how both boys and girls can be interested in fairies and pirates.

About the Author

When not writing, Maudie spends far too much of her time in expensive shops gawping at clothes and glittery things she can't afford, and dreaming about owning a pug called Stanley. She'd love to say that she runs marathons - but that would be a lie. Richard lives in Sussex with his wife and dog. He loves drawing and has been scribbling away since he was a tiny boy - often covering his sister's homework with his 'masterpieces', much to her annoyance. Richard loves to tell stories with his illustrations, especially if they involve animals and silly things.
