Hal the Pirate

By June Crebbin

Illustrated by Polly Dunbar

A lively and engaging Starters title for beginner readers illustrated by acclaimed picture book artist Polly Dunbar, with a friendly text and stylish two-colour illustrations.

Hal the Pirate is part of Walker Starters, the wonderfully fun and friendly series for beginner readers. "Yo ho the billy-o, a pirate's life for me!" But is it really a pirate's life for Hal, who gets seasick, falls overboard (a lot), and doesn't know his west from his east? This is a charming story with a twist at the end, told through a range of writing styles, including hand-lettered speech bubbles and diary entries. The illustrations, which appear on every page, are lively and stylish, and play an active part in helping children understand the text.

We loved this book alot because its nice and shows the pictures and also describes them. Our favourite part was when they were all fighting because they were using swords. The ending was a surprise but made the book enjoyable. A great read!!!
