The Pirates Next Door
by Jonny Duddle
Matilda lives in Dull-On-Sea and, as the name suggests, not a lot happens there. During the summer, it’s too busy and during the winter it’s too quiet. Which is why it’s so exciting when a colourful gang of pirates called the Jolley-Rogers arrive in the neighbourhood, ready to liven things up for a while. Just one problem – Matilda’s parents and the rest of the neighbours don’t approve, and gossip about their behaviour. Can the Jolley-Rogers beat the small-town attitudes and win over hearts and minds? In Jonny Duddle’s rhyming tale, you’ll have a ball finding out.
