tink ahoy! Mucky little ruffian Bertie is exploring life as a pirate. But will his horrible habits be too much even for his swashbuckling crew?
Join this nose-picking terror as he waves a cutlass, boards enemy ships and steals treasure-making all his victims (and shipmates) tremble with fear and disgust!
And what will happen when Bertie cooks up a storm with his own horrid restaurant reviews, and tries his hardest NOT to make Miss Boot's cross-country team?
Find out in three disgusting stories full of comic chaos!
Lucky I have young boys as this is not the type of book that appeals to me for long. The stories were short and kind of what I was expecting, a little ragbag boy who will do anything to mess things up for his teachers and his family. There were a lot of cartoon looking pictures which made the book a bit better.
The language used would appeal to kids as it uses easy words and things kids would say. My 5 year old is just starting to read and he was very excited to see that he could read Pirate without any help, but he never tried the book, I will be keeping it for him to try again in a few months.
I see that this is part of a series of books but I don't have much interest in reading the other books, although my boys might have different views. I would recommend this book to parents of young kids who love using their imaginations.

It's the start of an exciting cavemice contest: a race to Boulder Bay and back! It's a dangerous route, but it will supply the village cheese maker with rare hot lava peppers, and there's a big cash prize. Trap teams up with Geronimo who has a lazy, slow, city autosaurus (the cavemice mode of transportation). Can they reach the finish line without becoming extinct on the way?
