Every night Mungo gets his mum to read his favourite book two or even five times. It’s called ‘The Seafaring Adventures of Captain Horatio Fleet’. It’s a swashbuckling tale of bad shanty singing pirates, adventure and a fearless hero. One night though an exhausted Captain Fleet cannot be found and it is up to Mungo to rescue Admiral Mainbrace and plucky cabin girl Nora.

This is a ripping yarn with just what you look for in pirate books – bad pirates, daring rescues and plenty of treasure. The text is fun in both context and display and the illustrations wonderfully capture the feel of a little boys bedtime adventure. A funny and delightful read.
