Ten little pirates sailing out to sea,

Looking for adventure, happy as can be.

Are they hunting treasure? Are they going far?

Ten little pirates all say, "Arrrrrr!"

Ten little pirates set out to sea in search of adventure. But what will the ten little pirates do when they meet a hurricane . . . and a giant squid . . . and a HUNGRY SHARK?

This fun-filled rhyming story, which incorporates counting backwards from ten to one, is great to share with young children who are learning about numbers. The colourful, humourous illustrations feature objects to spot and count on every page. With a bouncy, rhythmic text and lots of great sound words, this piratical adventure is perfect for sharing again and again.

A rollicking read with an easy rhythm and jaunty illustrations... an excellent addition to books that help with counting. (Vanessa Lewis (The Book Nook, Hove))

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun and funny book 9 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a very funny, nicely illustrated counting book based around ten little pirates. Both our children - four and 18 months - enjoy it. It's good for help with numbers, but is done in a fun way so the kids won't notice. Lovely - recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars a reader 27 Dec 2013
By Consumer A VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
Wonderful book. Beautifully illustrated. Very clever as it invites children to read. The 'Pirates' could be any nationality and many children will be able to identify with them. Great idea of children dressed up as pirates as the whole book is like a game, with numbers descending from 10 to 0 in rhyme plus great fun with words like 'Arrrrrrrrr and Zap'. There is always the number of Pirates referred to in a blue wave at the bottom left hand page which corresponds with the written words and the whole book is exciting funny and full of adventure. Easy to read to a child and also a book they can 'read' themselves. Would give it 6 stars its great from 2 years up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for schools 19 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love the illustrations in the book and great for reading to a class of 5-6 year olds with little pirate figures to count backwards. It rhymes too and the children really enjoy counting back with the book. I think think would be even better for slightly younger children and would recommend to any teachers or parents wanting to introduce counting backwards to their children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun book! 5 May 2014
By Jasmine
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We are doing pirates as a whole school topic this term and I bought this to use with my reception class. They love it! It is written as a poem so the children have enjoyed trying to guess the rhyming words and the children who are having trouble with number recognition have found it fun counting to and from 10 and have done lots of pirate counting!
The book has great illustrations too providing lots to talk about.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great counting book 20 Mar 2014
By sam155 TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My four year old initially took some persuading to have this book as his bedtime story, but once I started reading, he really got into it. He is very proud of his counting, so there was lots of guessing how many pirates were left and counting aloud.

I also liked that all the little pirates, despite their various demises, all cam back at the end, so that there was a happy ending.
