One fine day, a little boy called Jack
Was playing with his toys in his yard out back
It was so much fun being out and about
He didn't even hear his mum call out!
"Lunch is ready!" little Jack's mum cried
But when at last Jack came inside
He couldn't bear to eat his lunch because
His chips were cold and his baked beans crunched!
"I can't eat this soggy old chip
I'd rather have lunch on a pirate ship
I'll sail with the crew far out to sea
They're bound to have lunch for a boy like me."
Join Jack on this exciting adventure to find the perfect lunch. Will the pirates have a tasty treat or will Jack have to venture further to fill his rumbly tummy?
You'll have to read the book to find out!
I am so delighted to finally be able to show you this book - it's taken a good few years to get from the desktop to the bookshop, I can tell you! But the wait was truly worth it. Kristina Stephenson of Sir Charlie Stinky Socks fame, has done the best job at illustrating this cracking adventure. She's been so utterly brilliant and clever in the way she's turned Jack's ordinary surroundings into an adventure to make your teeth rattle!
Lunch on a Pirate Ship is published by Simon and Schuster and is on this year's World Book Day recommended reads for 5-8 year olds.
