The Three Little Pirates by Georgie Adams and Emily Bolam
Trixy, Tammy and Trig are three little girl pirates who live aboard The Lucky Lobster with their pets Mullet the dog, Kipper the cat and a seagull called Gulliver. When the nasty pirate, Vanilla Cringe, kidnaps mermaid princess, Mo, and her friends, it's up to the little pirates to save the day. But can they outwit Vanilla? A delightful splash of ocean fun and adventure. Perfect for reading aloud or for children to enjoy alone, with lots of bright funny pictures, maps to follow, clues to find and puzzles to solve.
This is a great book for children of all ages. It has been classed as an early reader and I think it will appeal to both boys and girls.
The book is about three pirates, who set sail in their pirate ship to rescue Mo the Mermaid, the daughter of King Kodswallop and Queen Pearl, from a mean and greedy pirate-lady, Vanilla Cringe.
The story is told in a number of chapters, with each page having a combination of prose and also brightly coloured pictures, many annotated with further dialogue to tell the story.
I would recommend this book to both boys and girls and although this is classed as an early reader, i would suggest it is suitable for a more confident early reader as it has a number of harder words within it. However, the use of chapters make it easier to split the story into manageable sections for reading sessions.
Thank you to Nina Simon from Orion Books for sending me the book to review.
