PICTURE BOOK REVIEW:
PIRATE NELL'S TALE TO TELL BY HELEN AND THOMAS DOCHERTY
MY BOOK REVIEW
This is a story book adventure that celebrates the joy of reading and will thrill the little ones.
Nell joins a pirate ship with her trusty almanac but the Captain is not impressed with her bookish ways until she saves his life and discovers a treasure map! Can she find the treasure? Is it what they expect?
The rhyming text sets the fast pace for a thrilling adventure on the high seas. The gorgeous illustrations are a joy to behold overflowing with tantalising details that children will love pouring over. I especially like how the illustrations shows life onboard may not be all smooth sailing. Also there is a great surprise at the end!
At its heart is a message about the joy and importance of reading and learning. It will open a child's eyes to the possibilities in a book and show them that with learning they can become captain of their own ship!
Perfect for sharing at home or in class.
