Swap!

By Steve Light
Illustrated by Steve Light

A broken-down ship. A loose button. An idea: Let’s SWAP!

In this first book of pirates and simple mental arithmetic from the acclaimed creator of Have You Seen My Dragon? and Have You Seen My Monster?, a pint-sized pirate sets out to help a sea captain repair his broken-down ship. One button for three teacups. SWAP! Two teacups for four coils of rope. SWAP! But can he really barter his way to a new vessel for the captain in need? Steve Light’s exquisite, intricate pen-and-ink illustrations, punctuated with brilliant blue, anchor this clever tale of commerce, ingenuity and friendship.

  • Like his Have You Seen My... series, Steve Light provides hidden opportunities for children to apply their very first mathematical knowledge – this time, simple mental arithmetic!
  • Pirate fans will be especially thrilled with this new standalone offering from the acclaimed Steve Light
  • Features the same exquisite line work and straightforward text as the Have You Seen My... series – but with even more bright splashes of colour!

About the author

Steve Light is the author-illustrator of many books for children, including The Christmas Giant, Zephyr Takes Flight, Have You Seen My Dragon? and Have You Seen My Monster?. About Swap!, he says: “I love the idea of trading something small, like a button, to acquiring great fortune. Maybe it’s because I grew up rummaging for treasure in flea markets.” Steve lives in New York City with his wife and cat. Find him online at www.stevelightart.com and on Twitter as @SteveLight.
