Henry really does like pirate books so this series by Jeremy strong is a winner with him.
There are 5 books in the series and so far we have read 4 of them.
Patagonia Clatterbottom is the headmistress of the Pirate School where Smudge, Flo, Ziggy and Corkella are pupils. Each of the books deals with the adventures and mishaps that the pupils and teachers get up to. As usual with Jeremy Strong books, the events are silly and funny and often make Henry laugh out loud.
These are early reader books and have colour illustrations and short chapters – we easily read two a night.
They are great for sharing with Henry at bedtime and he especially loves it every time we have to say ‘Clatterbottom’ !
