Introducing Space Pirates!

This July we’re lauching a brand new, illustrated fiction series that’s perfect for 7 – 9 year olds (and boys in particular) – Space Pirates!

With fantastic black and white illustration by Benji Davies and gags galore from (ahem) author Jim Ladd, this fast-paced, funny series combines two perenially popular “boy subjects” (no prizes for guessing what they are).

The series launches with the fantastic Space Pirates: Stowaway. When Sam’s parents are stranded on Planet X, he bravely asks his neighbours, the notorious Space Pirates, to help rescue them. But they’d rather carry on bowling and singing space-shanties, so Sam has no choice but to hide in a barrel of alien slime and stowaway!

Here’s what Kirsty has to say about the series:

If you need a little help imagining such a glorious spectacle, here’s the first chapter of Stowaway:
