A perfectly pitched, irresistibly charming read-aloud picture book for the youngest pirate enthusiasts!
"Down, down, down the dark, dark street they came. Up, up, up the dark, dark house they climbed. Stealthy as shadows, quiet as mice. Only the moon was watching when they arrived. Only the moon was watching when they left. Only the moon & one little boy."
Tom is awoken by a band of rough, tough little girl pirates, so what does he do? He joins their ranks! Together they set sail in search of treasure. But what will happen when they meet a crew of rough, tough grown-up pirates? Readers will be swept up in the spare, jaunty text, & quirky illustrations in this unexpected bedtime adventure.

As well as books for children, Peter Harris wrote scripts for children and adult comedy TV programmes. Initially an accountant, he decided that writing was much more fun! Deborah Allwright is a rising star in children's illustration, and The Night Pirates marks an exciting new departure in her style. She lives in LondonFrom School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2–A group of rough, tough girl pirates sneaks over to Toms house to steal the front of his house to disguise their ship. When Tom hears them, he asks to join them, and they agree. Then its off to steal a treasure that belongs to adult pirates, and they are so befuddled by the ships house front that they give it up easily. This leads to victory and a good nights sleep for Tom. Harriss soothing text has a storytellers rhythm built in. The rhyming couplets are interspersed with questions that lead to the next section of the tale, clarifying and expanding it. The text is written in a rolling font that adds to the movement of the pirate ship. Allwrights illustrations are moody and midnight-colored with some collages added in. Their texture, made of maps and graph paper among other items, adds to the mystery of the adventures. The storys touch of the ridiculous will appeal to young listeners, especially surrounding the adult pirates. This tale would be terrific at a pajama storytime, and its pirate theme will satisfy many young girls and boys.–Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ
