The Skeleton Pirate

Publisher: Walker Books

The Skeleton Pirate is the terror of the seas - whether he's taking on sea monsters or sailors, he's determined he will never be beaten. Even when he's thrown overboard to the very bottom of the sea, and is swallowed by a whale, his fighting spirit doesn't desert him.

Acclaimed illustrator David Lucas's stylish and unusual illustrations are perfectly suited to this fun swashbuckling adventure, featuring a beautiful mermaid, a golden ship packed with treasure, and a whale with a very bad tummy ache. A humorous and exuberant story about the power of sheer determination, this is a picture book that will delight all small pirate enthusiasts, and is great fun to read aloud.
