Swashbuckle Lil: The Secret Pirate
Lil has a secret life. To her teachers and schoolmates, she looks like any other little girl - but underneath her uniform (and inside her head), she is a heroic pirate, protecting an unsuspecting world from evil baddies.
When Stinkbeard, the mouldiest, smelliest pirate who ever lived, tries to kidnap her teacher and then sends his pet crocodile to eat the children on Sports Day, Lil and her sidekick, Carrot the parrot, have their work cut out trying to save the day.
This first book in a new series contains two 'chapters' stories with expressive, energetic illustrations. The rhyming text and detailed drawings provide guidance and encouragement to youngsters transitioning from supervised to independent reading. Imaginative, witty, entertaining and lots of fun.
