The Secret Pirate Summary

The Secret Pirate by Elli Woollard

Lil is a pirate, a good sort of pirate, and when there is someone to save,
she'll do what is right (if it takes her all night). Yes, she'll always be bold and be brave.

When evil pirate Stinkbeard tries to kidnap Lil's teacher, it's up to schoolgirl and secret pirate, Lil, to come to the rescue. In story two it's sports day, but there's a very hungry croc on the loose. Can Lil and her trusty parrot, Carrot, scare Stinkbeard and his pet croc away?

Swashbuckle Lil: The Secret Pirate, by author Elli Woollard and illustrator Laura Ellen Anderson, is the first in an exciting series with two rip-roaringly rhyming, brilliantly illustrated stories in each book which make the perfect transition from parent-led to independent reading.

Anderson's illustrations burst with energy and humour * The Bookseller *
Two rip-roaringly rhyming and brilliantly illustrated stories for younger readers in one fabulous book * Phoenix Comic *
Told in jolly rhyme that makes reading the stories particularly fun and easy and with lively black and white illustrations on every page these are the perfect step up from picture books to chapter books. * LoveReading4Kids *

About Elli Woollard

Elli Woollard started writing stories after an embarrassing incident in which her youngest son broke Michael Rosen's glasses. Having previously written poetry, Elli's snappy rhymes, catchy rhythms and witty stories have captured the imagination of the children's book world; from picture book collaborations with wonderfully talented illustrators such as Benji Davies (The Giant of Jum and The Dragon and the Nibblesome Knight), Steven Lenton (The Great Gran Plan, 2017), to a first chapter book with the marvellous Laura Ellen Anderson (Swashbuckle Lil: The Secret Pirate). In everything she does, Elli Woollard brings a unique new voice to children's fiction, and is definitely an author to watch. She lives in London with her four children, her husband and two guinea pigs.

Laura Ellen Anderson, whose nickname just happens to be 'Lil, has been drawing and writing ever since she can remember. As a child, she was convinced her comics were best-sellers, although looking back they make absolutely no sense at all! These days however she is an accomplished illustrator and author, who loves being sucked into other worlds while bringing stories to life through her drawings.
