Darkmatters Review: Pirates Don't Clean Their Teeth




Pirates Don't Clean Their Teeth


by Adrian Summerson


Reviewed by Matt Adcock


Pirates eh? Bloodthirsty ne'er-do-wells that will cut your throat if you so much as look at them the wrong way... 


One can only imagine how bad their personal hygiene is - but now a new in depth investigation by renowned Pirate hunter Adrian Summerson has blown the lid off the seedy world of pirate dental practices as never before!


This is a fantastic new book - the kind that grips from the first page and doesn't let go until you emerge less than minty fresh from the other side of an odyssey that will take you over the edge, into pirate waters and treasure islands in the classic style of erm 'Treasure Island'!?


Pirates Don't Clean Their Teeth is brought to eye popping life thanks to the excellent illustration skills of Chris Scotcher - check the official site here: http://www.piratesdontcleantheirteeth.co.uk/# 


Plot synopsis: 


Hero 'Ben' decides to be a Pirate – and sets about a high sea’s adventure in his own
house. 


There are wild waves, elephants in trees, dragons, some cute fluffy toys and a
toothbrush. 


But most of all – there is treasure buried in the bottom of the garden.


This is a kids tale that grips like a rabid Rottweiler and is cunningly designed for interactive play. 


As a parent I was pleased to see that the book encourages your child to try some of the activities included in the story... Blood spilling, pillaging and piracy are entirely optional though - we're talking more drawing treasure maps and building boats!



"This illustration bares an uncanny likeness to the author..."


Pirates Don't Clean Their Teeth would make a fantastic Christmas present (son if you're reading this please act surprised if you get one alongside your PSPGO)!? 


I look forward to the digital version and audiobook narrated by Megan Fox!
