Didn't make much sense!
4 January 2013
Bought this for my 4 year old amongst other piraty stuff for xmas. he was looking forward to reading it at bedtime, and after reading other reviews thought he'd enjoy it. I found it rather strange, and it just didn't flow right. Maybe it's because we're massive Julia Donnaldson fans and expected it to rhyme (it doesn't), and the ending was a bit weired.
On the other hand the illustrations are brilliant and we enjoy making this a talking point.
