Argh and ahoy! Shivering Shellfish! Blistering Barnacles?! Captain Crabclaw and his most unusual pirate crew have hoisted their main sail and are on their way to the City of Tea Tree Gully Reader’s Festival!
When Captain Crabclaw advertised for a crew for his new ship, the Speedy Squid, he didn’t expect to get a duck, a cow, an elephant and a giraffe! This rollicking tale of swashbuckling and scrambled eggs will delight landlubbers young and old. So, bring along your children or grandchildren to the City of Tea Tree Gully Library on Saturday, the 7th of August, 2010 at 1:00pm for the Living Book Performance of ‘Captain Crabclaw’s Crew’ written by Frances Watts and illustrated by David Legge.
Frances Watts has worked as a bookseller, editor and author. Her first book for children, Kisses for Daddy, also illustrated by David Legge, was shortlisted in the 2006 Children’s Book Council Picture Book of the Year Awards. Her second project with David Legge, Parsley Rabbit’s Book about Books was the Eve Pownall award winner in this year’s CBC Awards.
There’s something for everyone at the City of Tea Tree Gully Reader’s Festival!
