Description - Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs by Giles Andreae

In this visually compelling picture book, Flinn and his friends find themselves entering a pirate world through the back of their school art cupboard. Enlisted by the less-than-fearsome Captain Stubble, the children set out to rescue his stolen ship. Little do they know that the ship has been taken over by a motley crew of pirate dinosaurs. Can Flinn and his friends save the day and will they get back to school before Miss Pie notices? A fantastic collaboration, combining the humour and imagination of the creator of Purple Ronnie and the exuberant artwork of Russel Ayto. Captain Flinn is an ideal book for all young boys.
