Lil is a pirate, a good sort of pirate, and when there is someone to save,
she'll do what is right (if it takes her all night). Yes, she'll always be bold and be brave. On a trip to the museum, evil pirate Stinkbeard tries to steal an old king's ruby ring, and it's up to schoolgirl and secret pirate, Lil, to stop him! In story two, Lil and her pet parrot are off to a birthday party. But when Stinkbeard and his pet croc turn up, it's up to Lil to save the day. Swashbuckle Lil and the Jewel Thief , by author Elli Woollard and illustrator Laura Ellen Anderson , is the second in an exciting new series with two rip-roaringly rhyming, brilliantly illustrated stories in each book which make the perfect transition from parent-led to independent reading.
This is Book 1 in the Swashbuckle Lil: The Secret Pirate Series. See all Swashbuckle Lil: The Secret Pirate books here.
