Reader review: The Jolley-Rogers and the Ghostly Galleon - Paperback - 9781848772403

Every full moon a ghost pirate ship is seen off the shore of Dull-on-Sea. The story begins in the Dull-on-Sea Museum where, one night, the exhibits mysteriously disappear. The story follows Matilda and her friend, Jim Lad, who is a member of the Jolley-Rogers family, as they try to reclaim the treasure from the ghost pirates, led by Twirlybeard, and return it to the Museum. This book is written by the same author as ‘The Pirate Cruncher’ picture book for smaller children – which I have read too. There is even a guide to pirate speak at the back of the book to help! This is a great story with lots and lots of description of the action involving Matilda and Jim. As a pirate book, you would imagine it to be more suited to boys, but I loved the story and the adventures of the pirates. I would love to read other books by the same author.

Brilliant -

This is a great first chapter book as it still has plenty of illustrations. In fact, it is the first chapter book my five-year-old son has been content and excited to read to the end! A very clever concept in that the book type has grown with the kids; the characters first introduced in The Pirates Next Door picture book and now appearing again in a chapter book. We love Jonny Duddle and can't wait for the next adventure!
