April 2015 Book of the Month From the team who created the Roald Dahl Funny Prize shortlisted Spaghetti with the Yeti comes a brand new picturebook, and it’s another tasty treat! This time young George has a wonderful plan to sail with a fine pirate crew. So he packs up a pizza, his favourite food, and rows off on the wide ocean blue. Sharp eyed readers will notice that the pirate ship is actually George’s bed, but it takes him on all sorts of adventures; he’s even swallowed by a whale before finally landing on a desert island, where he meets the pirates. It’s great fun, and the rhyming text is a delight to read aloud. Lee Wildish’s hirsute pirates caper wonderfully, and his sea monster (it fills a whole page) is superb! Great fun, and destined to be a real favourite with young readers. ~ Andrea Reece
A boy called George had a wonderful plan. To search for a real pirate crew.
So he packed up a pizza, his favourite feast.
And rowed across the wide ocean blue.
George, a young explorer, longs to meet a real pirate crew. So he sets sail with a cheesy treat to sustain him on his voyage. Join George on his travels as he finds scurrilous sea dogs and marine monsters - not to mention a feathered friend!
A wonderful fourth instalment in the George series, this is a funny seafaring fast-paced, rhyming story about pirates, legends, monsters and George, an intrepid kid keen to explore the high seas.
George’s earlier adventure Spaghetti with the Yeti was nominated for the prestigious Roald Dahl Funny Prize in 2013.
