Squirrel me timbers!

Squirrel Me Timbers (Fiction Picture Books) - Louise Pigott, Louise Pigott
by Louise Piggot
Age range: 3 to 6 years old

Sammy is a squirrel and considers himself a pirate. He "sails" the forest looking for pirate affairs. And one day it finally happens, Sammy finds a treasure map! The X marks the spot where hundreds of nuts are. Sammy is ready to go! A trip full of dangers and adventures is waiting for him ahead, but Sammy triumphantly goes through them all having always in mind the hundreds of nuts in the spot marked with the X. 
What at disappointment when he finally reaches the spot and not even one nut is there! Sammy is so mad he kicks a tree as hard as he can. Thousand of nuts fall from the trees! Trees that grew from the hundreds of nuts some pirates buried in the spot marked with an X!

Sammy is incredible funny and lovely, the story is hilarious, the rhymed text is really enjoyable, and the illustrations are perfect for the tale. 5 Stars for this great book!
Expected publication date: January 1st, 2016!

I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
