Pirate Blunderbeard: Worst. Pirate. Ever.
by Amy Sparkes, illustrated by Ben Cort
Can the worst pirate ever win the Pirate of the Year Award…?
Mum is making me take part in the stupid Pirate of the Year Award. All I have to do is fight an enormous sea monster, (doom), beat my oh-so-brilliant brother at something (please please please) and find the legendary treasure that no one has ever found EVER in the history of EVER (easy peasy, then). Wish me luck! PirateBlunderbeard.
Blunderbeard might be the worst pirate ever but he’s also the funniest – laugh-out-loud fun for young readers of 7+

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
#FirstLine ~ Dreamed last night that I was chased by goldfish with gigantic false teeth that turned into my mom and ate all my cupcakes.
A cute chapter book that will entertain kids four hours. The story is funny and one that kids can relate too (especially if they have a sibling). It has some twists and turns and it not predictable, rather more of an adventure. The illustrations throughout are clever and add much to this original story.
