Three pirates boast about their monster fights - but when a spooky fog rolls in, are the pirates as brave as they say they are?

Winner of the Bishops Stortford Picture Book Award 2021.

The pirates all cackled, tears rolled from their eyes, while a ship nearing port, held a frightful surprise.

Meet Pirates Hector, Sue and George as they tell tales of daring monster fights. The Hockler, the Crunk and the fearsome Muncher have all been bested by the pirates—or have they? As three visitors arrive through mysterious fog, the pirates’ bravery is tested.

Pirates vs. Monsters is a fun exploration of truth telling and boasting, suitable for 3 – 6 year olds. Written in rhyme with striking illustrations, this book is sure to be a story time favorite.
