Poppy the Pirate Dog is bored and lonely. A summer of fun and adventure has ended and Poppy is home alone. Imagine her excitement when she discovers she is to have a new playmate - a new shipmate. But then George arrives and to Poppy's surprise George isn’t a puppy. He's a kitten! Will George still turn out to be the shipmate that Poppy imagined or will George make her walk the plank?
A heart-warming tale exploring new relationships and things not quite turning out as expected.
Red Early Reader books are the next step on your child's reading journey, encouraging independent reading with exciting stories and engaging illustrations. Short accessible chapters make them ideal for newly confident readers - we also think they're great for sharing too!
Poppy is not very happy to discover that she is getting a new shipmate - a kitten called George. She's sure he'll be stealing her pirate treasure, taking her favourite spot by the fire, and generally causing trouble. What's a pirate dog to do?
