Pirates in Pyjamas by Caroline Crowe and Tom Knight (Children's, Picture book, 10E/10E)

13th August 2015, Little Tiger Press, 32 pages, Paperback, Review copy 

Summary from Little Tiger Press
Have you ever wondered whether pirates wear pyjamas when it’s time to say goodnight? Well leap aboard the Leaky Parrot to find out! Captain Grotbeard and his crew love nothing better than bubble baths, jim-jams and pillow fights! So if you want to be a pirate you don’t need a patch or sword – just grab your best pyjamas and a bed to climb aboard.

Nayu's thoughts     
This is a really fun book, explaining how there are many sorts of pyjamas which pirates can wear, which made me smile. It also goes through a practical yet fun wind down routine before read, which thanks to the memorable characters will make younger readers more eager to copy their favourite character's actions, a plus if they've previously struggled with night time routines. You know what I'd have really liked in this ace book? If some of the pirates were girls ^o^
