The Pirates on the Bus



Hop on and sing along to the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus" in this collectable new picture book series!

Join in with a crew of jolly pirates as they search the coast for treasure. When the pirates find 'x marks the spot', they fill their pockets with too much heavy gold, and their bus begins to sink . . . With a heave and a ho, and a bit of teamwork, can the jolly crew save their bus?

Packed full of actions to join in, with a calming ending to wind down after all the excitement, this is the perfect first picture book to enjoy reading aloud together.

Young readers will stomp their feet and clap their hands in delight as they sing along with this fun-filled, pirate reinvention of this popular rhyme!
