‘An exciting, funny story’ Father Reading Every Day gives thumbs up for The Pirate Who Lost His Name!

Father Reading Every Day and young reader T give a big thumbs up this week to new picture book by Lou Treleaven with illustrations by Genie Espinosa, The Pirate Who Lost His Name:

We really enjoy Lou’s stories and something she deserves great praise for is her versatility – ever story is totally different and original. Here, her prose provides lots of pirate-themed humour and is paced well to keep the quest exciting. The illustrations do lots to add to the humour and it is really clear to see that both Lou and Genie had much fun with their pirate variety! An exciting, funny story that I have no doubt we will return to repeatedly!

This is a story that boys and girls 4 and up will really enjoy. Its also great fun to read aloud, trying out different pirate voices and trying to match these to the illustrations – we got lots of giggles from this! T had 2 thumbs in the air as we finished our first read and told me, “It was really good and fun and I liked the beards plus Captain Squawk was my favourite.” ‘
