Poppy the pirate dog's new shipmate by Liz Kessler

Poppy the Pirate Dog's New Shipmate - Early Reader

Early Readers are stepping stones from picture books to reading books. A blue Early Reader is perfect for sharing and reading together. A red Early Reader is the next step on your reading journey.Poppy is not very happy to discover that she is getting a new shipmate - a kitten called George. She's sure he'll be stealing her pirate treasure, taking her favourite spot by the fire, and generally causing trouble. What's a pirate dog to do?

I first met Poppy the pirate dog in Liz Kessler's previous early reader title Poppy the Pirate Dog and immediately fell in love with her. A lovable family dog who thinks of himself as a pirate dog but prefers dry land to the seven seas!  In this book Poppy feels anxious when the family grows in size - George the kitten  wants to become top dog but Poppy stands firm!

This is another book in the fantastic Orion Children's Books Early Reader series. Perfect for children who are gaining confidence in reading chapter books either alone or with their peers, or would also be suitable for a book to share at bedtime, reading a chapter each night. The story is split into manageable chunks on each page with beautifully hand drawn pictures accompanying the text making pages appealing to children's eyes.

This is a great story and will be loved by both boys and girls alike. 

I look forward to seeing what mischief Poppy gets into in her next adventures soon

I received this book in return for a review from the publishers, Orion Children's Books.
