Review

Nick Sharratt's bold, colourful, funny illustrations filled with detail and movement bring added life to this collection of pirate-related short poems.

Each spread reveals that (play) pirate life is exciting and challenging, but that home comforts are useful to help small pirates cope!

There is a treasure island poem-map for readers to follow, and a variation on the old favourite counting rhyme ‘Five little…’, using pirates.

Filled with imaginative fun, and plenty of opportunity to join in with repetitive rhymes, and learn the poems, the bright colours and different patterns will attract the youngest book-lovers.

Small readers are reassured in the final spread by the safe return of the pirates to their mums and dads!
