Shiver me timbers – the Ghastly McNastys are back!
The McNastys are after Captain Syd’s treasure, rumoured to be buried in Little Snoring Castle. And they’re in luck – a pirate movie’s being shot there. They reckon they’ll easily be able to sneak into the castle, blend in with the cast and steal all the treasure.
But youngsters Tat and Hetty have outwitted the dastardly duo before,
and have plans to trap them once and for all.
The disgusting McNastys and their vile antics will have children squirming, and squealing with laughter from beginning to end!
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What a fun book! As a mum, I am always on the lookout for books to read with the kids that will capture and keep their attention for more than a few minutes. This book did that with no problem.
The illustrations are fun and break up the text every so often so the kids aren’t intimidated by miles and miles of passages without a break. The characters were cute and the story was fun and had a bit of mystery to keep them guessing.
The book is long enough that it will likely take them a few days to get through, but still short enough and easy enough content that it would be a good choice for a child just beginning to read chapter books.
I liked it a lot and had a really good time reading it with my boys. Two thumbs up, looking forward to the next one.
