Pirate Gran

 Illustrated by Rose Forshal

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.

32 pages | illustrated in color throughout | 9 3/4 x 9 3/4

"A feisty story, with plenty of pratfalls that older children will appreciate."

Time Out (UK)

"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."

Books for Keeps

"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."
