Win! New children’s book Pi-Rat! by Maxine Lee

WIN! A tale of scallywag pirates to fill up your children’s bookcase with Tidy Book’s book review and competition.

You can win a copy of Pi-Rat!’ by Maxine Lee, as part of Tidy Books’ partnership with Little Tiger Books’ reading campaign this summer; Reading Rocks. We will be giving away a Little Tiger picture book each week, for 5 weeks to help you get your little ones get the bookbug!

You can win a copy of Pi-Rat! by Maxine Lee.  To enter, leave a comment at the end and tell us who your favourite, famous pirate is?


Who wouldn’t want to be a pirate? You get to spend life on the high seas, doing whatever you like and being scared of nothing!  Pi-Rat and his scurrilous crew do just that (pogo-ing on crocodiles heads!), until they meet the biggest, scariest beastie and have their timbers shivered!

Pi-Rat is a lively and mischievous tale for little pirate enthusiasts everywhere.  Maxine Lee makes her debut with this book, and her witty illustrations and rascally characters are sure to make her a popular choice.  It demands to be read aloud in a pirate ‘ooh-arr’ voice, and I’m impressed she’s got the word ‘Avast’ into a children’s book!  The ending is reassuring and perfect for ages 2-7.

Pi-Rat! is published by Little Tiger Press who have kindly provided the review copy and a prize copy.
