Description

A refreshing new look for this beloved classic!

Because her noodle pudding is so delicious, a band of pirates kidnaps Grandma and her parrot, Oliver. When her granddaughter Melissa tries to save them, she gets captured too. Life aboard the pirate ship isn't so bad — Grandma makes lots of noodle puddings and Melissa helps to sail the ship. But the pirates are mean and nasty. At last Melissa comes up with a plan: they'll stop trying to get away from the pirates, and let the pirates get away from them.

Join Grandma, Melissa and Oliver for a rollicking adventure as they take to the high seas with three hungry, savage pirates.

Praise for Grandma and The Pirates:

Canadian Children's Book Centre, Our Choice, 1991Shortlist, Ruth Schwartz Children's Book Award, 1991

"Gilman's action-packed illustrations provide a perfect counterpoint to her exuberant text." —Quill & Quire

"Phoebe Gilman not only knows a good story, she knows how to write it well and draw it superbly." —Canadian Children's Literature

"[F]ull of hyperbole and humour — the kind of story that provokes the response: 'Read it again, please?'" —CM

"[C]ertain to become a classic for young Canadian children, and a favourite gift from grandmothers." —Canadian Book Review Annual

"This rollicking adventure of a feisty grandmother and grand-daughter who are captured by pirates has everything a good yarn should: humour, suspense, a happy ending, and a heroine who uses her head." —Today's Parent
