Debut of the Month July 2017 | In a nutshell: Pirates, dinosaurs, zombies, big brothers in an irresistible comic adventure

There are so many pirate stories you’d think it impossible to write one that’s fresh and original, so congratulations to Paul Whitfield for doing just that. Narrated by Emilie, it starts when she discovers her parents have been kidnapped by pirates. She and her brother Will immediately set off to rescue them. It turns out that Will has secret skills, dinosaur training for example, which all come in handy as they meet a succession of scary creature, from dinosaurs to zombies. Ellie isn’t entirely trustworthy either it seems; nonetheless, her direct to reader narrative provides the book with a reassuring sense of order no matter how crazy the adventures get, and also sets up lots of really good jokes. Packed with illustrations, this will appeal to fans of other clever madcap romps such as the Mr Gum books or Circus of Thieves series. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Pirate Mcsnottbeard in the Zombie Terror Rampage by Paul Whitfield

A fully illustrated, laugh-out-loud pirate romp in which Emilie and her brother William set out to rescue their parents from the horrible and smelly pirate king McSNOTTBEARD. Whisked from the high seas, through prehistoric lands, into an evil wizard's castle and finally to the PIRATES' clifftop hideout, they must tackle dinosaurs, zombies, angry parrots, and at least one warlock...

Reviews

Whitfield writes with flair, and his exuberant plot, however batty, is meticulously explained. [...] the story's charm lies in the way she [the narrator] plucks up the courage to put things right. * The Daily Telegraph *
