Smashwords book reviews by Sally Startup

  • Pizzas, Pirates and a Porcupine on April 06, 2013

    Full of endearing characters, not least the pirates, in spite of all the disruption they cause. This story is very funny. It is perfect for children to read alone or for adults to read aloud. Beneath the humour is a depth of consideration that adds very much to the story's uplifting tone. Evie and her dad need to be both tactful and clever to handle a hilariously difficult situation. The illustrations are clear and cheerful, with some enchanting details, such as the baby elephant's pirate earing.
