A pictorial look back at this event
We LOVE Jonny Duddle and his pirate tales which are perfect for 4-6 year olds! This is the second chapter-book instalment about the eccentric pirate family, the Jolley-Rogers, following on from the best-selling picture books ‘The Pirate-Cruncher’ and ‘The Pirates Next Door’.
While the Jolley-Rogers are enjoying a day at the beach, little sister Nugget toddles into a cave. When she doesn’t come out again, Mum goes in to find her. And, when Mum doesn’t return, Dad follows.
Jim Lad is suspicious and sends Bones the dog to Dull-on-Sea to find Matilda before he too ventures in to the cave. Jim Lad soon discovers a magical haul of treasure inside the cave has bewitched his family. Will the cave’s spooky inhabitant, a sinister sea witch, keep them prisoner forever, or can Matilda and Bones come to the Jolley-Rogers’ rescue?
Perfect as a first read-aloud chapter book for 4-5 year olds, or for 6-7 year olds making their first forays into independent reading. Gudrun.
