Pirate Baby

By Mary Hoffman
Illustrated by Ros Asquith

Here is a pirate story with a difference - featuring female pirates and a baby, this hilarious tale is full of unexpected twists and turns.

When the crew of pirate ship Ramshackle find a tiny baby adrift on the high seas, they are a bit flummoxed. Even more so, when they discover it's a baby girl. The adventures that follow in this rollicking tale are full of laughter and surprises, as the pirates sew nappies, make baby clothes out of pirate shirts and even a toy squid out of pirate gloves for the new arrival. The pirates won't give up their baby – not even to the women pirates who pass close by. And when a huge sea monster appears, it's baby Isla who saves the day, to become a true Pirate Baby.

  • From the author and illustrator of the bestselling Great Big Books series, sold in over 20 languages
  • A pirate story that challenges stereotypes as the pirates of the Ramshackle learn parenting skills and baby care
  • Published to coincide with International Talk Like a Pirate Day, Thursday 19 September 2019
