Are you the Pirate Captain?

Written by Gareth P. (Author) Jones

Illustrated by Garry Parsons

Are you the Pirate Captain? Synopsis

First mate Hugh has got the whole crew and the pirate ship ready, but they can't set sail until they find a captain! Come on this salty adventure as Hugh and his scurvy seadogs try to find the perfect pirate for the job. Rather than a peg leg or a hook, it turns out what their captain needs is the brains to lead.

Are you the Pirate Captain? Press Reviews

Parsons' jaunty, full-color acrylic illustrations provide lots of fun and cartoonish detail, and they are a clever companion to Jones' rhyming, sea-shanty-like verses. * Booklist * The text bounces along in rhyme, swishing readers along to a satisfying end. It just begs to be read aloud! * Books for Keeps * Revel in the rhythm and rhyme of this colourful tale. * Early Years Educator * A jaunty pirating mystery -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller * With its jaunty rhyming telling and gigglesome visuals, this swashbuckling tale, complete with sea shanty is likely to appeal to would-be young sea dogs especially those who enjoy a book where things are not quite as they seem. * Red Reading Hub *
