Look out for more Comic Classics: Great Expectations Join Pip in a rip-roaring story of family secrets, scary grannies and a REALLY annoying big sister.
OLD books get NEW doodles - it's the classics as you've never seen them before!
A hilarious new series that brings the classics to life with illustrations by Jack Noel.
Perfect for 7-9 year olds and fans of Tom Gates, Wimpy Kid and Dav Pilkey. And PIRATES. Get your HOOKS into the one and only original pirate adventure! Jim Hawkins spends his life helping out at his mum's boring old inn by the sea, wishing he could sail away and have adventures. But when an old sea captain turns up with a secret, it's the start of a bigger adventure than Jim could ever have imagined - soon he's on a ship on the trail of buried treasure, accompanied by a suspicious sailor named Long John Silver ...
Will Jim escape the pirates? Or will he walk the plank? Climb aboard with Jim, a chatty parrot and a bunch of crazy pirates for a hilarious adventure across the seven seas.
Praise for Great Expectations;
A funny, thought-provoking treat, it's the ideal way into [Dickens]', Imogen Russell Williams, Guardian
'Buy a copy of Jack Noel's retelling of Great Expectations before I set the dogs on you. Now, begone!', Philip Ardagh, Roald Dahl Funny Prize-winning author
'It is BRILLIANT!', Jenny Pearson, author of The Super Miraculous Journey of Freddie Yates
'Jack Noel's brilliantly witty art perfectly complements Dickens' Great Expectations, making this a fab KS2 text to sit alongside the classic. Brilliant for dyslexic kids who may struggle with Dickens' prose . . . this book could bring a generation of kids to the classics', Abi Elphinstone, author of Rumblestar, Sky Song and the Dreamsnatcher trilogy

Jack Noel is a Jack of three trades: author, illustrator, designer, who works mainly on children's books and is a co-host on the Down the Rabbit Hole children's books podcast. In 1986 he won the Brighton Cooperative Beautiful Baby competition. Now Jack lives in London with his family and enjoys doodling in books belonging to dead Victorian gentlemen. One day he tweeted some spreads of Great Expectations in a funny middle grade style, and the rest is history!More About Jack Noel
