Bloomsbury, 2017. ISBN 9781408849392
A-haarr! It's always difficult to get busy pirates to hang up their peg legs, cutlasses and eyepatches at the end of another eventful day of adventures on the high seas. But even bloodthirsty Sea Dog McPhail, Black Bearded Brewster and the others have to take a bath and shampoo before eating their supper and huddling around Mummy with her big story book.
This rocking rhyme about plucky pirates, with its captivating illustrations, is a warm-hearted children's book, together with easy-to-read text, that is sure to delight all who venture here.
J. Kerr-Smith
