Description

A hilarious retelling of The Boy Who Cried Wolf, with not one but TWO twists!

Tom has a VERY important job; every day he climbs to the top of the hill and watches for pirate ships. But when he rings his bell and shouts !"PIRATES!" a few too many times - and there's NO pirate ship - the villagers begin to get tired of hiding. So what will happen when the pirates really do show up?

Repeated phrases make it easy and fun for young adventurers to join in with the storytelling, and witty, bold artwork by Matt Hunt adds to the fun, with new and hilarious things to spot on every rereading. This inventive picture book has so many surprises in store and a wonderfully diverse range of characters and family groupings.

John Condon has been shortlisted for various awards including the Lovereading4kids Children's Book Awards. Matt Hunt has been nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal, and his book Stephen Hawking Little People, BIG DREAMS was an Amazon bestseller.
