Colour Young Puffin: Pirate School: Where's That Dog?

There’s heaps of swashbuckling excitement at Pirate School when the pirate pupils find a stray dog! But not everyone is happy: their teacher, Patagonia Clatterbottom, is being plagued by horrible school inspectors who are not at all impressed by her lessons! How can the children help? Yo ho ho: they decide to sail the school away! The school inspectors give chase, but too slow – the children fire on their boat and take it over! Full marks for the lessons they’ve learnt about being pirates. And to make the ending even sweeter, they’re allowed to keep the dog too! A fabulously funny read-alone book from top author Jeremy Strong.
