Illustrated by the bestselling author and illustrator of Great Women Who Changed the World, Kate Pankhurst, Captain Cat and the Treasure Map is a laugh-out-loud piratical adventure from Sue Mongredien, perfect for newly confident reads or to enjoy together. Patch is a ship's cat who lives aboard The Golden Earring. Along with her friends, Cutlass the parrot and Monty the monkey, Patch frequently gets the pirate crew out of trouble - although they never realize quite how much she does to save their skins . . . In their first adventure, the pirate crew discover a treasure map and set out to find where X marks the spot. But little do they know that the treasure is cursed and it's up to Captain Cat to stop them, before it's too late!

This is a funny adventure book about a cat, parrot and monkey. Patch is the cat, Cutlass is the parrot and Monty is the Monkey. They belong to the Golden Earring Crew which includes the pirates Captain Halibut, Cannonball, Butch and Ginger. They are in a race with the Black Heart Crew to reach the treasure first but the animals are trying to stop the Golden Earring Crew because the treasure is said to be cursed and may lead to certain death. There are some great black and white pencil drawings in the book and some very funny jokes and songs. We all really enjoyed reading this book together and it made us laugh a lot. We  especially like pirate stories and are very excited to read the sequel when it comes out.

A charming, rather funny, pirate story. The story is seen through the eyes of three animals on board a pirate ship, The Golden Earring: Monty, a monkey, Cutlass, a parrot, and Patch, a cat. Patch, is a clever, little character, not really listened to, but still manages to sort things out. The parrot has a tendency to tell lots of 'groan making' jokes. The illustrations, in the main, seem to have been drawn in pencil. Unfortunately, times (to my eyes) they can be a little faint. My son enjoyed the story and liked Patch, the cat. However, I don't thing he would be interested in further books in the series. It is probably best suited for 5 - 8 year olds.
