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 book is written really well - there is an element of fun to the story and the rhyming makes the book even more fun to read! The illustrations are lovely and help to conjure up imagery to accompany the story! My little girl loved the story and has asked for more!

I loved this book and how it was two books in one. I also really enjoyed that it was a rhyming book, which I didn't know at first. The pictures in the book are really funny and help you imagine what was happening. I loved this book and read it to my mummy in a day. I have asked mummy if she can buy the other books in the series.

I enjoyed the story.  At first I didn't realise it rhymed/the verses were poems but Mum read a couple of verses and then I could do it too.  The writing style was fun and I liked the rhythm of the words.  The pictures we really good too.  I could imagine the story in my head.  I would like to read more of them.  A really good book thank you!

This was such a fun book to read, my daughter really enjoyed it.  Especially the ryming bits because she found those quite fun.  She really likes pirate stories and this was an easy, fun read and we read just a few pages each night before bed.  She also really loved the pictures as this brought th story to life.  Would recommend.  It is also not a story just for boys!
