Captain McGrew wants YOU for his crew by Mark Sperring and Ed Eaves (Bloomsbury Children's Books)
Posted by ReadItDaddy at 9:30 AM Labels: Bloomsbury Children's Books, Captain McGrew wants you for his crew, Ed Eaves, Mark Sperring
Mark Sperring and Ed Eaves have once again teamed up for a slice of seafaring life on the ocean waves - only, this time the captain's plucky crew consists of a whole crew of scurvy kids - and YOU!
Yes, time to join the crew, setting sail with a nautical cove who (to be quite honest) is a bit of a stinkpot.
You may imagine you'll be enjoying life aboard ship but there's plenty of hard work to be done, swabbing the decks, tending to the captain's every whim and if there's even a note of dissent you're going to be walking the plank quicker than you can say "Polly want a cracker?"
Smooth rhyming, bold colourful illustrations, a cracking cast of kids and a huge ginger-bearded captain. It's got all the right ingredients if your little ones really can't get enough piratical action.
"Captain McGrew wants YOU for his crew!" by Mark Sperring and Ed Eaves is out now, published by Bloomsbury (kindly sent for review).
