Pirates Ahoy!

Written by Sophie Smiley

Illustrated by Michael Foreman

Part of the Bobby/Charlton Series

Pirates Ahoy! Synopsis

'Why are pirates called pirates?' 'Because they aaAHRRR!' Charlie's football-mad family swap goalposts for the seaside, and her brother's on a quest for a pirate adventure. It's all hands on deck as cannonballs fly and damsels in distress are rescued. But will Bobby ever find his hidden treasure? And will Charlie ever win him back to the football pitch?

Pirates Ahoy! Press Reviews

Action-packed adventure propels this short and easy to read book forward at a pace that will be hugely satisfying to emerging readers. * Julia Eccleshare, Lovereading4kids * Splendid but modest short books... The stories are directly and pointedly aimed at their own audience and skilfully balance between simplicity and the avoidance of condescension... Highly recommended for lots of reasons. * The School Librarian (Summer 2009) * Smiley's style is warm and true to life, and should gain her plenty of fans. * Books for Keeps *
