Penny and the Pirates

We got sent a copy of The Adventures of Penny the Postie - Penny and the Pirates to review. The book is about a postie who comes across a strange old postbox and then finds herself on a desert island helping out a pirate who had his ship stolen by another pirate.

I read it to Oli earlier whilst he was eating his lunch and whilst Daddy wasn't around to laugh at Mummy doing her silly pirate voices. We both enjoyed the book , ok I might of understood it more and got really excited at certain points more then him be he still understood that it was a story book and he happily listened to me read it to him whilst showing him the pictures. I hope we can see more books involving Penny's postie adventures!

We thought the pictures were fab , the book was illustrated by the Author Keith Robinson. As well as illustrating Penny The Postie he also illustrated Guernsey's (where I lived and worked for a year!) Philatelic Bureau's Sherlock Holmes Stamps.

We've been given two copies to give away to two lucky readers , all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning a copy is to let me know in the comments section is
what would your pirate name would be if you were a pirate?

I will get my own little pirate to pull out two names from a hat exactly one week today (24.10.10)
Sorry only open to those in the UK... Good Luck!

If you cant wait or didn't win then you can buy a copy of Penny and the Pirates over at The Adventures of Penny the Postie's website for only £4.95 which includes Pirate Ship stamps - worth £2.95!
