Veiled in humor, but hard not to read as a parable that tweaks narrow minds and parochial attitudes.

The book is about a boy and his pirate family. Some pirates move to Dull-On-Sea, next door to a girl called Matilda. The girl thinks it is great that some pirates have moved next door and says to Jim-Lad, ‘you’re cool!’. But the pirates get up to mischief and start doing naughty things. The people of Dull-On-Sea wanted them to go away so they phoned up the council.
One of our favourite characters was Nugget; “My favourite character is Nugget because she is really, really cheeky, rude and funny and she is learning to fire cannon balls”.
You should read this book because if you read the blurb it sounds exciting and the name sounds really cool and the pictures look cool and they are a crazy family.
The book is about a super family and the pages are detailed with writing and the pages are colourful.
So those are some of the opinions of my class and I can back them up. A fantastic picture book that children love!
Won't be reading this one to him for now, it seems nice, nice illustrations and storyline looks interesting (I have not read the whole thing though) but it is just far too long for a toddler with short attention span.
Maybe when he is 3 (and hopefully he will still like pirates by then)
