Pirate Baby by Mary Hoffman and Ros Asquith (Otter-Barry Books)

More nautical naughtiness on the high seas, but this time the trouble is pint-sized...
"Pirate Baby" by Mary Hoffman and Ros Asquith is a ticklish little pirate story with a tiny protagonist.

A bunch of surly buccaneers discover a tiny tot adrift at sea. Naming her Isla, they soon discover that this teeny tiny terror is more than a match for a pirate crew, and soon becomes a valued member of their happy ship. But darkness is on the horizon, in the shape of a competing band of brigands - who are all women!

What on earth will Isla make of them, as two pirate crews are forced to band together to outwit a nefarious foe.

A super little pirate book for younger readers, with fun and energetic writing from Mary and child-friendly art from Ros. Scrape the barnacles off your reading glasses and read this out loud to your little ones, with plenty of yo ho hos and yar-harrs!

"Pirate Baby" by Mary Hoffman and Ros Asquith is out now, published by Otter-Barry Books (kindly supplied for review)
