ARRR! Captain Sneer and his hardy crew of buccaneers are in for adventure – and a big surprise – in this rollicking rhyming treasure hunt. (Age 3 plus)
Ahoy there, me hearties! Meet CAPTAIN SNEER – a most boastful buccaneer! He’s ROUGH and TOUGH. He’s BRAVE and BOLD. He SAILS the SEAS in SEARCH of GOLD!
This rollicking, tongue-in-cheek rhyming story tells the tale of a boastful pirate who thinks he is rough and tough and brave and bold but, in true pantomime fashion, his crew - and the reader - know otherwise!
Filled with plenty of piratey action and much slapstick fun!
The interplay between the text and illustrations creates a 'pantomime' effect which encourages active participation and interaction.
