The story (which is particularly good for Grannies to read, I suppose, though that did not stop me and my niece from enjoying it) is about a granny who is very much like most grannies today but when she was young she used to be a pirate. The humour is in the matter-of-fact way that the story of her pirating days is told, as if it was a perfectly natural career choice for her to make. Her adventures are great fun and there are lots of interesting things on each page to look at.
I hear from a reliable source that G Durrant is writing another book so I shall be keeping an eye out for it.
