LoveReading View on Molly Rogers, Pirate Girl

Molly Rogers is one tough little girl. Kidnapped by pirates she stands up to Captain Firebeard and refuses to tell him her parents’ names, even when the pirates set her to work cleaning and scrubbing their boat (and boots). But instead of laughing they should have listened to her when she warned them about not making her mum angry, and the tables are thoroughly turned by the end. This jolly story of girl-pirate power will have everyone laughing, the text is full of gusto and bravado, great fun for reading aloud, and the scribbly illustrations are brim-full of life and detail. Oooh-arrrrs all round!  ~ Andrea Reece

 

Molly Rogers, Pirate Girl Synopsis

Ferocious Captain Firebeard and the crew of the Horrible Haddock rule the high seas. But the dastardly pirates meet their match when they kidnap a small, feisty girl called Molly as she sails to visit her granny. But Molly refuses to cower in fear. She knows something the pirates don't - the real pirate to fear is none other than Molly's own mum, and she won't be pleased to find her daughter kidnapped! International bestseller Cornelia Funke and rising picture book star Kasia Matyjaszek join forces in this laugh-out-loud swashbuckling adventure that celebrates empowered girls everywhere.
