A hilarious picture book debut has a scurvy crew setting off for an island of gold, where an unexpected development awaits under the final flap. (Age 3 and up)
I was sailing along and what did I see?
An island of GOLD in the scurvy sea!
But there’s one small thing I forgot to share —
there’s also a MONSTER waiting there.
A mysterious old pirate tells a tavern of salty seadogs about an island bursting with hidden treasure. But once they set sail, he also mentions that it is guarded by the terrible Pirate Cruncher. When the pirates’ greed gets the better of their fear, there’s a big surprise in store!
Jonny Duddle is a debut author-illustrator whose fantastic artwork is also gathering fans in the film and computer game sectors. He lives in Buxton, England.
The biggest draw backs to this book is the choice of fount and black type on a dark background. The publisher needed to help the author of the book understand the difficulty in reading "fancy" font; and then they made it more difficult to read by putting black font on a dark blue background.
With that said after multiple read through I got good enough at reading/remembering the words that I am requested to read this book nearly every night.
Also, there's a pretty cool fold down page toward the end of the book that my son loves (no spoiler alert).
Stunning art, great writing, fun to share!
