Next February we’re publishing a fantastic new picture book – Captain Beastlie’s Pirate Party, an exciting and original collaboration from author Lucy Coats and illustrator Chris Mould.
And today we can give you the VERY FIRST look inside!
Captain Beastlie is a horror and embarrassment to his ship-shape crew – he is THE grubbiest pirate on the high seas. He’s eagerly counting down the days till his birthday – but what he doesn’t know is his crew has got a special secret lined up for the Big Event. His days of being the smelliest, dirtiest pirate ever are numbered, and when Captain Beastlie’s birthday finally comes, he’s in for a big surprise, as his crew plans to steal his filthy old clothes, pop him in the bath and give him a brand new set of pirate togs at his birthday feast.
So without further ado, here’s a preview of this very funny, VERY disgusting, fantastically illustrated story:
