The first in an exciting series, The Secret Pirate comprises two rip-roaringly rhyming, brilliantly told stories.

Lil is a pirate, a good sort of pirate, and when there is someone to save, she'll do what is right (if it takes her all night). Yes, she'll always be bold and be brave. When evil pirate Stinkbeard tries to kidnap Lil's teacher, it's up to schoolgirl and secret pirate Lil to come to the rescue. In story two it's sports day, but there's a very hungry croc on the loose. Can Lil and her trusty parrot, Carrot, scare Stinkbeard and his pet croc away?
