The Treasure of Pirate Frank


A lively rhyming pirate adventure written by Mal Peet, winner of the Carnegie Medal and Guardian Prize, and Elspeth Graham, based on ‘The House That Jack Built’.

A visual feast with bright, characterful illustrations by talented artist Jez Tuya.

A boy and his dog set sail in search of treasure, braving stormy seas . . . mountains snowy and cold . . . the forest where the monkeys swing . . . the swamp where the bullfrogs sing . . . and other challenging obstacles, before finally reaching the end of their quest.

But wait! Pirate Frank is A GIRL! And she doesn’t want to share. Back home they go, retracing their steps before sailing away to dream of the treasure they’ve lost.

This read-aloud picture book is perfect for all scallywags aged 3-6.

“‘This is the boy who wants to find the treasure of Pirate Frank,’ opens the authors-and like that, we’re off on a quest! The expansive trim size, convenient for group sharing, features a sentence per page, crafted by Peet, the late author known for his YA fiction, and Graham, his widow and collaborator, while New Zealand artist Tuya contributes bright, stylized digital pictures to make for an awesome adventure.”
