9781405211611: The Night Pirates

A much-loved adventure on the high seas from Peter Harris and Deborah Allwright. Perfect for every reader who loved Pirates Love Underpants and The Pirates Next Door. One night, young Tom is awoken by noises outside his house. He peeps out of the window and what should he see but PIRATES. And stranger still - they're GIRL PIRATES stealing the front of his house! Tom joins their adventure across the high seas to an island where some rather lazy and silly grown-up pirates are guarding their treasure. Not very successfully! Tom and the girl-pirates make a surprise attack and are soon off on the seas once more with the treasure! This swashbuckling pirate story from Peter Harris and Deborah Allwright has become a modern-day classic. Great fun to read-aloud and entertaining for both boys and girls, The Night Pirates is a bedtime story to inspire the imagination of kids aged 3 and up. Peter Harris was born in London in 1933. He has written for television, radio and children's comics. His picture books include Have You Seen Max? and Bottomley the Brave. Deborah Allwright has made a dramatic impact on the picture book scene since the publication of The Night Pirates. Her other wonderful books include Hooray for Knickers and The Witch with an Itch.

About the Author:

Peter Harris As well as books for children, Peter Harris wrote scripts for children and adult comedy TV programmes. Initially an accountant, he decided that writing was much more fun! In The Night Pirates he has created one of the finest pirate stories a child could hope to read. Deborah Allwright Deborah Allwright has become a star of the picture book world since the publication of The Night Pirates. She has been shortlisted for the V&A Illustration Award, and illustrated the hugely successful She'll be Coming Round the Mountain and the critically acclaimed Don't Read this Book! Deborah is one of Egmont's most celebrated and successful illustrators. She works in a studio in Islington, stopping only to attend designer clothes sales, and to do a spot of DJing at music festivals.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2–A group of rough, tough girl pirates sneaks over to Toms house to steal the front of his house to disguise their ship. When Tom hears them, he asks to join them, and they agree. Then its off to steal a treasure that belongs to adult pirates, and they are so befuddled by the ships house front that they give it up easily. This leads to victory and a good nights sleep for Tom. Harriss soothing text has a storytellers rhythm built in. The rhyming couplets are interspersed with questions that lead to the next section of the tale, clarifying and expanding it. The text is written in a rolling font that adds to the movement of the pirate ship. Allwrights illustrations are moody and midnight-colored with some collages added in. Their texture, made of maps and graph paper among other items, adds to the mystery of the adventures. The storys touch of the ridiculous will appeal to young listeners, especially surrounding the adult pirates. This tale would be terrific at a pajama storytime, and its pirate theme will satisfy many young girls and boys.–Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ
