Hi there friends,

It’s time for another children’s book to review! This one is certainly a pirate story with a twist, so I hope you enjoy my review…

Captain Clockheart is the leader of the Steampunk Pirates aboard their vessel the Leaky Battery. When a mechanical albatross swoops in during a storm, they first think it wants to lead them to land. However, Ridgey the Albatross was created by the same man as the Steampunk Pirates themselves – Mr Richmond Swift. The albatross tells them how he was a guard bird at the Tower of London guarding the crown jewels. Together, they devise a plan to steal the crown jewels. However, not everything is as it seems…

This was an entertaining story that I have no doubt boys and girls alike will enjoy reading. A definitely different and original take upon pirates which was thoroughly enjoyable. Especially the thought of all the metal pirates on the Leaky Battery surrounded by water! A fun, enjoyable read which will enthral children and adults alike.

If you would like to obtain a copy of the book, you can do so from a variety of places including Amazon UK. Please don’t restrict yourself to only these options, there are lots of brilliant local bookshops that rely on your custom so please support your local booksellers.

Happy reading,
Anna x
