Lucy sets off on an adventure to find her father who has been captured by pirates. Lucy and the Pirates is a rollicking, rambunctious adventure story set in the days when pirates sailed the seas and no traveller was safe. Glen Petrie’s text and Matilda Harrison’s richly-detailed illustrations combine to create a period piece of great authenticity and charm that brims with excitement.
“There’s plenty of satisfaction to be had from the way Glen Petrie and Matilda Harrison make every cliché of the genre walk the plank.” Times Education Supplement
“Night scenes, aerial views and one fascinating four-sided border painting provide endless spicy detail. This book is as enjoyable for adults as for children and would be perfect for a ‘stay in bed’ adventure.” Canadian Children
