Pirate Pete Sets Sail
by Jean-Pierre Jaggi
Age Range: Under_5
Pirate Pete and his mates are setting sail for a new island. It is hard work loading all their treasure onto the ship, but they manage to cast off and sail across the seas until they finally spot their new island. This is a lovely story about a boy who is concerned about moving to a new house with his parents. He decides to turn
it into an exciting adventure – the house is the pirates’ den, the car a ship and the motorway service station is a filthy harbour – and, of course, he is the pirate captain.
This is an ideal book for parents to use if they are planning to move house. Very lively and vibrant illustrations by Alan Clarke, full of colour that will attract any young child.
