Take a first look inside You’re Not a Proper Pirate, Sidney Green!

Next January we’re absolutely delighted to be publishing You’re Not a Proper Pirate, Sidney Green! – a brand new picture book, written by That Bear Can’t Babysit author Ruth Quayle, and illustrated by award-winning artist Deborah Allwright.

And today you can take a first look inside the new book!

Sidney Green loves going on rip-roaring adventures with his dog, Jemima. Together, they race cars, sail all the way to Africa and build an enormous castle, complete with a moat full of crocodiles. But Captain Shipshape and his pirate band are NOT happy. They think it’s time for Sidney Green to become a Proper Pirate – right now, not “in a minute”. What will Sidney Green do?

With a wonderfully witty text, beautiful, evocative artwork, and a story featuring pirates, cars, ships, animals, diggers and dinosaurs, this is a riotous, rip-roaring read for any child with a big imagination.

And here’s a look inside the book!

You’re Not a Proper Pirate, Sidney Green! will be in shops in January – you can pre-order you can copy today, here.
