A boy called George had a wonderful plan

To search for a real pirate crew.

So he packed up a pizza, his favourite feast

And rowed across the wide ocean blue.

George, a young explorer, longs to meet a real pirate crew. So he sets sail with a cheesy treat to sustain him on his voyage. Join George on his travels as he finds scurrilous sea dogs and marine monsters - not to mention a feathered friend!

Pizza for Pirates is a funny rhyming romp, the perfect read-aloud adventure book for boys and girls aged 3 and up! Ideal for fans of Pirates Love Underpants and The Pirates Next Door. George's first adventure Spaghetti with the Yeti was shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and Highly Commended at the Sheffield Children's Book Award.

This book combines two of Leo's favourite things: pizza and pirates. It was guaranteed to be loved and we weren't disappointed! 
The illustrations are bright, colourful and detailed with lots to spot in them. The story is told through a poem with opportunities to use different voices and make it more fun. 
It is told from the perspective of a little boy which helps the reader to believe it really could happen to them! It's a firm bedtime story favourite at the moment!

Eventhough Connor can read himself he insists that I read these out loud to him at bedtime, so he can concentrate on the pictures. We love George's adventures and hope there are many more.
