Ian Billings was born at a very young age. He has done many things in his time and some of them he'd like to tell you about. He is an ex-juggler, a pantomime writer (fifty productions!), an actor, TV extra, a theatre technician, a university lecturer, a model and a general dabbler in many areas.

He has written episodes of BBC TV's Chuckle-Vision and his stage plays and pantomimes have been performed in Wolverhampton, Northampton, Hastings, Nottingham, Weston-Super-Mare and on a ferry to Spain. He has a Masters Degree from Birmingham University and two goldfish from Petworld. He is five feet and seven inches in length and avoids cheese.

Ian began performing stand-up comedy for kids at Edinburgh Festival Fringe (whilst also presenting his own radio show for Festival FM!) and now he tours theatres and schools throughout the UK, Cyprus, Germany, Australia, Uganda, Kenya, Russia, Switzerland, UAE, Oman, Vietnam and Thailand. He was described by one young audience member as "the most imaginative adult I've ever met!"

Caboodle Books reprinted SAM HAWKINS AND THE POINTY HEAD LIGHT HOUSE in October 2010 followed by sci-fi poetry collection, SPACE ROCKS!

Ian has recently edited an anthology of children's poems for Save the Children called "Born to Giggle!" and his latest book is "IAN BILLINGS' LOST PROPERTY."

A really fun set of stories for pirate fans

My 6 year old is convinced he likes Pirates of the Caribean, but is FAR too young for it, and wouldnt like it even if he did watch it
This is a good compromise as it isnt too babyish, but it is totally harmless with some exciting stories, but no skeleton or zombie pirates!!

Difficulty wise he is on Turquoise level (if that means anything to you) and struggles with the odd word but can read the bulk of it himself- but much prefers to have it read to him!!!

All in a good set of stories and good value

not brilliant from my point of view - not exactly great literature! The first story is based on 'Britain's got talent' with Simon Cowell and co which is mildly amusing if you are into this kind of thing, if you are not, dull, dull, dull to a grown up and totally lost on a 5 year old child. The other stories failed to grip us either.

I was really disappointed because some of the stories are way above my children's understanding. The cover appeals to children and appears to be a youngish child's book but it isn't so. Some of the storues are really 'pirate' stories as such.

Wonderfully funny adventure stories for little people but grown ups would also like either reading it for themselves or to their children.
