Pirates Love Underpants
Our March children's picture book of the month is Pirates Love Underpants.
This charming story is the latest collaboration between bestselling and award-winning duo Claire Freedman and Ben Cort. With the pant-loving antics of Aliens, Dinosaurs and even Santa Claus having already been exposed in this hilarious series of picture books, it's now the turn of Pirates to show us what their pants are made of!
Joint the Pants Pirates as they embark on a very special treasure hunt. Grab your cutlass and sail on the pirate ship Black Bloomer past angry crocs, sharks in fancy knickers, and through gurgling swamps, on a quest to find...the fabled Pants of Gold!
A hilarious, rollicking, rhythmical story that will delight fans of the series.
