Star Pirates Unleashed!

The two pirates books I was working on at the end of last year/beginning of this year are out in the shops today!

Check 'em out:

books1

books8

books3

books6

books5

books4

books7

It is the first time I've done black and white work, and I really really enjoyed it. Can't wait to do more junior fiction titles in the future. I'm really quite chuffed with the finished books (although I think the paper could've been thicker to make the illos brighter, but that's just me being picky), especially with that last spread, which is my overall favourite. Out in the ships* today! Woo!

* Unintentional typo, but thought I'd leave it in as it was rather appropriate!

They look fab, Emm@! I love you black and white illos! What children's age range are they aimed at?

Thanks everyone! I feel you are NEVER too old for pirates!

They are aimed at kids who have mastered Early Readers, but are not quite up to something like Roald Dahl, so aged around 5-7ish.
