LoveReading View on Explosive Adventures

There are two stories in this attractive little book, both involving food, animals and independent adventuring, a great combination for children! The Popcorn Pirates takes place in the Caribbean where a group of children single-handedly take on the pirates who have stolen their islands’ popcorn harvest. Their method of overpowering the pirate is particularly ingenious! In The Bubblegum Tree another set of children head for the forests of India to help their favourite local factory owner save the special bubblegum trees from loggers. Alexander McCall Smith is an expert storyteller and these are really satisfying and enjoyable stories. Kate Hindley’s pictures catch the tone perfectly.  ~ Andrea Reece
