HASH(0x994f1c18) out of 5 stars A PATCH ON THE EYE AND A PARROT ON THE SHOULDER 19 Jan. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
What a shame this book is out of print. It's one of Pamela Allen's best, rivalling "Who Sank the Boat" and the Mr McGee series for fun and entertainment value.
Most children like to dream of being pirates. The patch on the eye and the parrot on the shoulder are all part of the game.
The hero of our story has an older brother called Peter who's got a pirate suit. Of course Peter has all the fun, gets all the treasure and makes our little friend walk the plank when in a sea of crocodiles.
When the boys grow up a little our friend inherits the pirate suit. However he doesn't get to experience the pleasures of being a pirate since Peter is now a lion tamer. Now, guess who is the lion? It looks like young brother is about to get his revenge.
Lobby the publisher to get this fun book back in print.

HASH(0x99598870) out of 5 stars Mediocre with inappropriate illustration! 1 Jun. 2011
By Lana Banana - Published on
Format: Paperback
The story is average - what I thought this book had going for it was the fun pictures. We bought it used, but then half-way through are a series of illustrations of a pirate ship with a busty naked woman on the front - not just a carving, but one with facial expressions etc. I would not recommend this for school-aged children at all. We threw it away.
