Description

Pirating isn’t the life for everyone, but Gran says it's a career more girls should think about. Meet Gran – who's been a pirate since she was a young girl! With a pet crocodile who sleeps under her bed and a wicked sense of humour, knowing Gran is never dull! This witty and quirkily illustrated book will take kids on a rollicking journey of pirating fun, and adults will struggle to contain their giggles.”

Editorial Reviews

"Pirate Gran [...] is indisputable truth, picture book confirmation, that grannies were once unbridled girls, bold maidens, bodacious damsels, not homespun grannies knitting in their rockers."

— Harold Walters, the Southern Gazette

“Rose Forshall’s comic-style illustrations provide a treasure trove of clues to Gran's piratical past… Geraldine Durrant’s swashbuckling story of Gran’s escapades and how she met and married Grandpa is awash with witty asides and humour.” - Books for Keeps

— Books for Keeps

“A feisty story, with plenty of pratfalls that older children will appreciate – and some gentle feminism to please their mothers.” - Time Out
