Book Review: Pugwash and the Sea Monster by John Ryan - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (25 Aug 2013)
Pugwash and the Sea Monster comes from a series of Pugwash adventures which are allot of fun for the young reader.
Pugwash and the Sea Monster is probably one of the better books in the series, when all the pirates are celebrating with their treasure on a small desert island they weren't expecting a sea monster to visit them, there is however a nice twist to the tale. Kind of like the boy who cried wolf.
The illustration are what you would expect from the series, they are colorful and quite detailed for a children's story book. Overall a fun read.
