The Beastly Pirates by John Kelly

They’re called The Beastly Pirates
and this fearsome ugly bunch
scour the seas for other pirates
they can gobble up for lunch. 

I took this to school last week with a roundup of picture books for my daily early-morning bookworm slot. My year 5 class absolutely LOVED it! They found it hilarious, disgusting & exciting (all perfect ingredients for a great children’s book). They enjoyed the rhyming text and the detailed illustrations.

I also really enjoyed it, for all the same reasons.
