Giles Andreae and Russell Ayto's super-fun Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs: Missing Treasure! When Flinn first met the Pirate Dinosaurs, he thought that he had taught them a lesson. But the real lesson is this - never trust a pirate, but never ever trust a pirate dinosaur. This time, Flinn is hot on the trail of some stolen treasure and he knows exactly who's to blame. With the help of his friends and Captain Gurgleguts, fearless Flinn tracks the rotten crew to the Lost Island. So far, so good, but Flinn and his pals hadn't reckoned on the dinosaur's secret weapon - the Giganotosaurus, T-Rex's cousin and the biggest dino the world has ever known! Will our hero be able to sail out of trouble this time? And what about all that stolen treasure? Luckily, every baddie has a weak spot and it's not long before the swashbuckling Flinn fights his way to victory! Giles Andreae is an award-winning children's author and has written both fiction titles and best-selling picture books. His picture book, The Lion Who Wanted to Dance, won The Federation of Children's Book Award in the best picture book category in 1998. However, he is probably most famous as the creator of the phenomenally successful Purple Ronnie, Britain's favourite stickman. Giles lives in Notting Hill with his wife and three young children. Russell has illustrated books by prolific children's authors such as Ian Whybrow and Cressida Cowell. The Witch's Children was shortlisted for the Greenaway last year and this year The Witch's Children and the Queen is on the Smarties shortlist. Russell lives in Penzance, Cornwall. Don't miss the other Captain Flinn picture books - they're all rip-roaring fun! Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs; Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs: Missing Treasure!; Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs: Smugglers Bay!; Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs: The Magic Cutlass And Giles Andreae's brilliant book with illustrator Korky Paul: Sir Scallywag and the Golden Underpants

Russell Ayto has illustrated books by many leading picture-book authors, including Ian Whybrow and Cressida Cowell. His book The Witch's Children was shortlisted for the Greenaway Award in 2004 and The Witch's Children and the Queen won the Gold Award for the Nestle Children's Book Prize in 2003. His most recent accolade was the Roald Dahl Funny Prize for The Witch's Children Go to School in 2008.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3—Young Flinn the dinosaur lover returns for a class trip to the museum. The boy is amazed by the skeleton of the ferocious Giganotosaurus, but becomes especially intrigued by the mysterious disappearance of one of the museum's other displays—the pirate treasure of Captain Rufus Rumblebelly. Flinn and his friends follow a trail of clues (overlooked by the museum staff, of course) to a dusty cupboard, which leads to the cabin of Rumblebelly's ship. Here they find the pirate's grandson tied up, having recently been robbed himself by singing pirate dinosaurs en route to Bag o' Bones Island. Captain Flinn takes the helm and eventually recovers the treasure from pirate Giganotosaurus, who is deathly afraid of the spider dangling from Flinn's hat. Ayto's childlike yet masterful mixed-media paintings of spiky-haired Flinn, the rotund pirate, and a fanciful cast of dinosaurs will keep audiences glued to the page. As in Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs (S & S, 2005), the theme here is the beauty of a good imagination. Andreae pulls off another rousing tale for any young person who loves to dream big.—Jayne Damron, Farmington Community Library, MI
