Small Publishers' Children’s Book of the Year Shortlist, ABIA 2017
MY POP IS A PIRATE
Following the popular My Nanna is a Ninja, Damon Young and Peter Carnavas have a new children's picture book, out now.
Some pops scream 'Huzzah!' when they dive in dazzling pools.
But my pop is a pirate … he yells 'Aaarrrgghhh!' and buries jewels.
All pops are different. But what if your pop was really different? What if your pop was a … pirate?
A rollicking and comical picture book celebrating pops and grandfathers everywhere and the joy and fun they bring to our lives. A must for every family and library.
