Go, Go, Pirate Boat

Publisher: Bloomsbury

A pair of plucky young pirates set out across the sea to look for buried treasure on a desert island with their trusty parrot in tow.

They may be young, but they are fully accomplished in all essential pirating skills: raising the anchor, hoisting the sail, surviving a storm at sea, scrubbing the decks, reading the treasure map (X marks the spot!), and walking the plank. And, perhaps most important of all, they manage to get home in time for tea.

The inspired rhyming text should be sung to the tune of Row, Row, Row Your Boat and is sure to delight preschoolers as they learn everything there is to know about pirates.

Nick Sharratt’s bold, witty illustrations breathe life into the pint-sized buccaneers, numerous sea-creatures and pirate-related paraphernalia, and will encourage colour recognition and wider discussion.
