The story is about reluctant pirate apprentice Brad who is sent to work on The Salty Dog to learn all about being a pirate when all really wants is to drive a digger. After many disastrous attempts at pirating, Brad is giving one last chance – find the buried treasure or walk the plank! When his shovel breaks, all looks lost, but maybe he can find some help at the local building site…

Pirates Don’t Drive Diggers has received it’s first great review from Handy Mummy. 

“[Pirates Don’t Drive Diggers] was a really fun read. Perfect for both boys and girls, it deals with the topic of stereotyping in a really fun way. I loved the underlying theme of this book and thoroughly enjoyed reading it. In our house we love a good pirate story and this one certainly fits in well.”
