Meet the Jolley-Rogers - a pirate family who're moving to Dull-on-Sea, a quiet seaside town. Stopping to fix up their ship, this unusual family get the whole neighbourhood spreading rumours. Defying the grown-ups, Matilda from next door decides to become friends with the youngest pirate son. When the Jolley-Rogers leave, the town discovers they were wrong to assume the worst - the pirate clan have buried treasure in everyone's gardens (shown in a stunning double-gatefold). Matilda feels sad until she discovers her own treasure - an incredibly exciting new pen friend.

Duddle's rhymes have the buoyant, singsong quality of a sea shanty... he does an excellent job of exaggerating the pirates' slightly menacing yet silly appearance and the concerned glances and raised eyebrows of the unwelcoming community.
Jonny Duddle lives in North Wales with his wife and young family. He is the concept artist for Aardman Animation's forthcoming film The Pirates! (UK release March 2012). He has also written and illustrated the hugely successful picture book The Pirate-Cruncher, (Templar Publishing) longlisted for the Greenaway Medal, and illustrated the cover for Nation by Terry Pratchett, shortlisted for Best Children's Illustrated Book at the English Association Book Awards.
