Review

The Salty Dogs, one of five pirate gangs in the Pirate Islands, are sailing for Crossbone Island in search of treasure. It’s been a tough time: Captain Fifi and her crew haven’t had a sniff of treasure for so long that they’re considering giving up the pirate lark altogether. Unfortunately, when the Salty Dogs get there, rival pirate gang the Sea Monkeys have beat them to it. Yet when the treasure is unearthed, it’s clear that only the Salty Dogs will like it.

Matty Long’s cartoon-style illustration, funny signage and pirate puns will keep kids entertained for ages. Salty Dogs continues in the style of his previous brilliant Super Happy Magic Forest books; if you loved Trevor, the gender-neutral mushroom, then you’re in for more fast-moving adventurous fun and plenty of dramatic exclamations with this band of dastardly dogs.
