About the book
Giles Andreae and Russell Ayto's super-fun Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs: Smugglers Bay!
uring the school play, Flinn finds himself slap-bang on the deck of a real-live pirate ship . . . and he's not alone! Pirate Diplodocus, Pirate Triceratops, Pirate Stegosaurus and, of course, his old arch-enemy, Captain T. Rex, are all there too. They are all on the hunt for the famous magic cutlass that can grant wishes - WATCH OUT, CAPTAIN FLINN! But you have to be careful what you wish for, and that dastardly Captain T. Rex soon finds himself in more trouble than ever!
Giles Andreae is an award-winning children's author and has written both fiction titles and best-selling picture books. His picture book, The Lion Who Wanted to Dance, won The Federation of Children's Book Award in the best picture book category in 1998. However, he is probably most famous as the creator of the phenomenally successful Purple Ronnie, Britain's favourite stickman. Giles lives in Notting Hill with his wife and three young children.
Russell has illustrated books by prolific children's authors such as Ian Whybrow and Cressida Cowell. The Witch's Children was shortlisted for the Greenaway last year and this year The Witch's Children and the Queen is on the Smarties shortlist. Russell lives in Penzance, Cornwall.
