A simple, singsong text and child-friendly illustrations tell an amusing tale of a baby saved and an adventurous hero born.
When you've caught a baby in a hat, what else is there to do but to sail all over the world and return, with treasure in your trunk, to fall in love?
Once again, the inimitable Allan Ahlberg offers a tale full of energy and fun. Paired with André Amstutz's charming illustrations, this is a story sure to be read over and over again. And it's all true.
