Adventures of the Steampunk Pirates: Attack of the Giant Spiders – Book Review

I am trying to get Ethan to read more chapter books and this was just what he needed – The Adventures of the Steampunk Pirates – Attack of the Giant Spiders. We loved the illustrations and even Aeryn (3) enjoyed the book being read to her.  The Story The Steampunk Pirates jump at the chance to earn a handsome reward in return for doing some snooping. But when they find themselves sandwiched between the Dread Captain Inky beard and a spider on the attack, it’s time to beat  retreat. Can they escape without a scrape or have the robotic rebels ticked their last? Comical  characters, daft puns, fast dialogue and even faster action make these collectable books irresistible. From Blue Peter awardwinner Gareth P. Jones and complete with theme tune, this hilarious new series has been met with high praise! The Author Gareth P. Jones is the author of many books for  children, including the Ninja Meerkats series, and The Considine Curse, for which he won the Blue Peter Book of the Year 2012 award. He also works as a producer of TV documentaries.Gareth has […]
