Helen Brain

Human & Rousseau

The hilarious adventures af two picaroons, Will and Joe, who escaped with their lives from the pirate ship The Squirty Squid – under command of the evil Captain Bumshott – when they had to walk the plank to meet with a terrible fate . . . death by drowning. They experience high adventure, death-defying strategies and weird and wonderful creatures who save them from the sharp teeth of the Great Spotted Potato Fish and the clutches of the disgusting Mrs. Tyra Nickel. A story that will appeal to younger and older readers, boys and girls. It is packed with funny, quirky stuff that kids at this age love. Vian Oelofsen’s pictures are just as quirky and compliments the text brilliantly.
