Meet Pirate Mouse. A rough, tough, treasure-loving pirate with a problem. She’s terrified of… WATER. Having long since been abandoned by her shipmates for not being a ‘proper pirate’, Pirate Mouse finds herself all alone.
One day, fed up of hiding in the shadows, Pirate Mouse decides she needs an adventure. So, she sets off on a daring treasure hunt.
The treasure hunt takes her on a swashbuckling adventure across a giant pirate ship, where she must confront her fears to claim the prize.
But there’s a twist! When she FINALLY makes it to the pirate-booty, it isn’t what she was expecting at all. She was hoping for gold and jewels, but is she about to discover an even greater treasure?
A funny and heart-warming tale that’s sure to have you talking like a pirate.
Perfect for fans of Julia Donaldson’s, The Troll, or Jonny Duddle’s, The Pirates Next Door.
With an important message about not letting fear stand in the way of your dreams, Pirate Mouse has become a firm favourite with children, parents, and teachers alike. Here’s what some readers had to say …
It’s a delightful tale of life on board a pirate ship for a Mouse.
And it’s so nice to see a female role for the central character. A real rarity, especially in pirate stories. The illustrations focus on the main characters and are really distinct. I like that the pages aren’t busy and distracting with small details. They don’t need to be. Moab Book Club
A fabulous story for children of all ages!
We have been so excited knowing that a 2nd book was being published by Kirstie Watson and it definitely didn’t disappoint!
It was a welcomed treat during lock-down and was well received by both the 3 and 6 year old!
It is now on the favourites shelf in my sons room although I quite often find it’s been snuck into my daughters room! I have a feeling that I will need to buy a 2nd copy! Joanna L Smith
A story with a surprise that leaves you and your child smiling.
“I love this book because it is about kindness and that friendship is more precious than treasure. I also like that a little mouse can also be a strong, brave and tough pirate!”. Words from my 6 years old daughter. This is a great story full of adventure and mishap that leads to an unexpected discovery…a little like life in general! The story teaches children about perseverance and compassion, qualities that are relevant more than ever, to today’s world MRS SUMUDU EDIRISINGHE
