Best-selling author Liz Kessler makes her first foray into early fiction with a funny tale about an aspiring pirate dog who is afraid of boats.
Poppy the dalmatian can’t wait to go on a seaside vacation with her family. And when they tie a skull-and-crossbones scarf around her neck, she’s sure a pirate’s life of adventure on the open seas awaits. But to be a pirate dog, Poppy must find her perfect pirate ship. Unfortunately, boats bob up and down a lot. Waves splash over the side. Strange creatures live in the water. After trying — and failing — to be a brave pirate dog on a fishing boat, a seal-spotting cruise, a pedal boat, and a speedboat, Poppy has almost given up. Will she manage to find her pirate ship before the family heads back home? From New York Times best-selling author Liz Kessler comes a full-color early reader for adventurous young scalawags and their pirate pooches.
About the Author
Liz Kessler is the author of the bestselling series about Emily Windsnap. Once I d written three Emily Windsnap books, she says, I felt it was time for a change. I wasn t sure what to write next and spent quite a few months umming and ahhing as I tried to decide. Then I remembered something that happened to me when I was about eight years old. It had to do with finding a daisy that I was sure was going to turn into a fairy. The idea grew and grew in my mind until I ended up with Philippa Fisher and the Fairy Godsister. Liz Kessler lives in Cornwall, England.
