Squirrel Me Timbers wins this years prize (so far) for the best usage of rhyming text and puns in one picture book. I found it an incredibly amusing read and myself and the four year old had a really lovely afternoon reading the book, acting out parts of it and talking about the rhyming words. Sammy Squirrel, the pirate is just the most amusing concept and as a character he really does work.
This is the author Louise Pigott’s first children’s picture book and I think she has really done herself proud here with fun illustrations and a witty story. A walk in the woods will never be the same again!
This is a lovely little book which I’d recommend and I think it would make a fab gift for a toddler alongside a pirate hat and cutlass!
