Extract from my book, Clever Dad and the Pirate Ship
Another scene from my story Clever Dad and the Pirate Ship. In this story a clever dad builds his son Tristan a pirate ship. Tristan sails away and is carried towards the island of Polysneezia where he must stop some real pirates digging the island up looking for treasure. The book is available from Amazon as an ebook and as a printed paperback. It contains illustrations like this throughout the text. In the printed book they are repeated at the back so that younger children can colour them in.

Here’e the extract:
Tristan sat back and let the warm Easterly wind blow his little ship along while he occasionally steered. There was nothing on the horizon at all, he could see for many kilometres. The Easterly wind pushed his ship on and over the horizon to the horizon beyond that. A group of flying fish came past going in the other direction.
“Good morning,” said Tristan politely.
“Good morning,” they replied in unison. “Where are you going?” they asked as they circled Tristan’s ship, flying in and out of the water.
“To Polysneezia,” exclaimed an excited Tristan.
“We wouldn’t go there if we were you,” they all trilled together.
“Why ever not?” asked Tristan.
“There’s trouble on the island,” they replied.
“What sort of trouble?” he asked as the pretty fish danced in the water and in the air.
“Pirate trouble,” they said.
“Pirates!” said Tristan.
“Yes, nasty group, digging up the whole island looking for buried treasure. If they dig many more holes the island will probably sink.” Then they added, “Aren’t you a pirate?”
“Oh, that’s terrible,” said Tristan, “I will have to try and stop them. I am, but you see, I am a good pirate.”
“It’s best you leave them alone, young man.”
