Little boys and girls who have just learned to read will absolutely adore The Littlest Pirate for it’s a story with a huge amount of fun and adventure broken down into short chapters and some terrific illustrations.

Includes humorous story for first readers - simple chapters, which help make reading fun! It also includes lively line drawings throughout by Tom Jellet.

About the Author

Sherryl Clark
I was born in New Zealand in 1956 and moved to Australia in 1978.

Today my time is divided between teaching and writing, but much as I enjoy teaching, I do hope to eventually write almost full-time (I can’t imagine giving up teaching altogether!). I also speak at conferences, teach one-off workshops, visit schools (when I have time) and participate in events such as the MS Readathon and children’s book events.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.
