One dark and stormy night, a salty old sea dog tells the tale of a mysterious island, bursting with pirate booty! Captain Purplebeard and his crew have already set sail by the time the cove mentions the hideous Pirate Cruncher who guards the gold…
"The Pirate Cruncher will definitely appeal to readers with a sense of adventure. The first thing we noticed was the artwork, which is exceptional. It veers from dark and mysterious to bright and hearty from page to page and really kept our interest. The colours are intense, the characterisation is excellent and each picture is detailed, meaning kids could look at this book for hours and still enjoy the illustrations." www.kidscompass.co.uk
