5+: Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs: Smugglers Bay - Giles Andraea, Russell Ayto

Release Date: 02/09/10


Captain Flinn is Puffin's favourite pirate. He has swashbuckled his way through three pirate dinosaur adventures and lived to tell the tale. But now he faces his toughest challenge yet. Captain T Rex and his pirate crew are smuggling sausages out of a secret cove and their favourites are children chipolats - gulp! Watch out Captain Flinn! But this time, the Captain T Rex has bitten off more than he can chew and wily Captain Flinn and his friends soon teach him a lesson he won't forget.


Whilst I’m not the biggest fan of Russell’s artwork it is fun, it is almost childlike and the overall story benefits from the style. It’s an interesting story, it carry’s itself well and to be honest it’s the dinosaurs that really make this for me. Add to the mix, a whole host of fun, investigative rhymes and above all else Children Chipolata’s and its something that will appeal to many. Whilst this is part of a series it is something that can be picked up separately for the readers pleasure and will be one that great fun can be had, especially if you can do different voices.
