Hal the Pirate Paperback
by June Crebbin
Illustrated by Polly Dunbar
Part of the Walker Starters series
Hal the Pirate is part of Walker Starters, the wonderfully fun and friendly series for beginner readers. "Yo ho the billy-o, a pirate's life for me!" But is it really a pirate's life for Hal, who gets seasick, falls overboard (a lot), and doesn't know his west from his east?
This is a charming story with a twist at the end, told through a range of writing styles, including hand-lettered speech bubbles and diary entries.
The illustrations, which appear on every page, are lively and stylish, and play an active part in helping children understand the text.
