Exciting news just in: Jonny Duddle’s book The Pirates Next Door starring The Jolley Rogers, (everyone’s favourite pirate family) has been shortlisted for the¬†Roald Dahl Funny Prize. We wait with baited breath until the winner is announced in November. Here’s a few of my favourite snippits from the book.

Matilda lived in Dull-on- Sea

After school a neighbour came round

They really don’t smell very nice

They’ll steal your gold
