The Great Flytrap Disaster

Book 3

By Chris Mould

  • Paperback
  • £5.99

The third book in an irresistible series about tiny pirates who have BIG adventures, from well-loved author/illustrator Chris Mould.

In an old junk shop sits a dusty ship in a bottle. And when the world isn't watching, a tiny pirate crew comes out to explore. They're smaller than a teacup, but these scurvy sailors have a HUGE appetite for adventure!

Up on the Pocket Pirates' shelf, the summer heat is rising. Flies are swarming around Button's pirate ship. And Mr Dregby, the house spider, has got his six hungry eyes peeled and his eight hairy legs ready for action ...

BUT BUTTON IS READY FOR DANGER!

The third book in an unmissable new series about tiny pirates who have BIG adventures, with gorgeous black and white illustrations throughout, from the illustrator of A Boy Called Christmas.

This was an interesting and funny story about some tiny characters living a secret and adventurous life — Daniel Looney, Fifth Class, Shanballymore National School, Evening Echo (Cork)
Like the much loved The Borrowers but for a new audience and white a contemporary pirate twist, the madcap adventures of Captain Crabsticks and his crew will delight young readers and have them howling with laughter. Science facts are embedded into a fun and engaging capre. Sketche throughout help bring the story to life and make this a perfect chapter book, bridging the gap between picture books and first novels. The book contains some brilliant ideas for incorporating into the curriculum. — The English Association
