We AARRRR pleased to announce a partnership with Bloomsbury Children’s Books to celebrate the paperback publication of the bestselling piratical adventure Pirate Stew, written by award-winning storyteller Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Chris Riddell.
Pirate Stew tells the tale of Long John and his crew pirates, two intrepid children, flying ships, donut feasts and some rather magical stew.
Pirate Stew! Pirate Stew!
Pirate Stew for me and you!
Pirate Stew, Pirate Stew
Eat it and you won’t be blue
You can be a pirate too!
