Get ready for adventure with a swashbuckling grandma in this charming first installment in the popular Pirate Gran series.

Pirating isn't the life for everyone, but Gran says it's a career more girls should think about. Long hours, of course, but you get to travel—and if you like eating fish and bird watching, it's ideal, really.

Meet Gran, who's been a pirate since she was a young girl! With a pet crocodile who sleeps under her bed, a wicked sense of humor, and a whole raft of adventures under her belt, knowing Gran is never dull! This wildly witty book will take kids on a rollicking journey of pirating fun, and adults will struggle to contain their giggles.
Review Quotes
Time Out (UK)
"A feisty story, with plenty of pratfalls that older children will appreciate."
Books for Keeps
"Forshall's comic style illustrations provide a treasure trove of clues to Gran's piratical past. . . . Durrant's swashbuckling story of Gran's escapades, both past and present, and how she met and married Grandpa is awash with witty asides and humour."
Southern Gazette
"Pirate Gran . . . is indisputable truth, picture book confirmation, that grannies were once unbridled girls, bold maidens, bodacious damsels, not homespun grannies knitting in their rockers."
