Pirates mixed with classic Kiwiana. What’s not to love. Rhetorical.
Join the rhyming pirate and his cheeky parrot companion on a colourful voyage, laden with rollicking rhymes, as they try to find a word which rhymes with carrot. Along the way, there are 20 classic Kiwi treasures to discover – from chocolate fish, hokey pokey ice cream and jet planes to jandals, Pohutakawa and Tūī.
Artist and debut author Glenn Jones has always enjoyed picture books, particularly the images. As a father, he gets to read lots of books to his three kids and decided it was time to create one of his own. The result is The Rhyming Pirate – a fun, nostalgic take on a classic pirate story with a distinctively Aotearoa flavour.
