LoveReading View on Mungo and the Picture Book Pirates
More bookish adventures here when the pirates in the bedtime story Mungo loves come to life. Suddenly, armed only with a teddy bear, Mungo is the hero of the swashbuckling adventures. Bold, carton style illustrations make this a lively night time romp.
Mungo and the Picture Book Pirates Synopsis
Each night Mungo reads his favourite story, a swashbuckling tale of danger, kidnap and rescue. But one night the hero, Captain Fleet, isn't there to save the day so Mungo decides to step in. He takes a deep breath and bravely jumps into the story and his very own pirate adventure. With a lot of bravery and a little help from the purple berserker bird, Mungo rescues Admiral Mainbrace and the plucky cabin girl Nora from the clutches of villainous Barnacle Bill and a whole host of horrible pirates.
