The Pirate Cruncher

The Pirate Cruncher
Jonny Duddle

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

Selected as one of the 50 best books by Scholastic Education Plus in their picture book category 2010. Shortlisted for the 2010 Best Children's Illustrated Book Awards, and for the "Read it Again!" award sponsored by Cambridgeshire Libraries.

"A heartily told, tongue-in-cheek tale … loved the tiny details in every picture." Charlotte Miles, Waterstone’s Burton on Trent
