Pirates in the Supermarket cover

The little boy from Dinosaurs in the Supermarket is off to the shops again. Surely this supermarket trip will be completely normal? Err – nope! The dinosaurs have gone home, but something else is causing chaos in the aisles! There’s an anchor in the butter. There’s a spyglass by the juice. There are parrots on the carrots! There are PIRATES on the loose! That’s bad enough – but even worse, the grown-ups can’t see them. Can this little boy teach the pirates some manners?

A witty new sequel to Dinosaurs in the Supermarket


Fun, fast and full of crazy characters... What more can a swashbuckling child ask?
Red Reading Hub
With plenty to look at – hide and seek within a book – and delicious language to roll your tongue around, this is a heartily enjoyable swashbuckling read.
Minerva Reads
This book is trademark Timothy Knapman – a tight, pacey rhyme which at no point feels forced, likeable characters (even the bad guys) and jam-packed with humour guaranteed to make kids laugh! We also really liked Sarah’s illustrations and had lots of fun trying to spot all the hiding pirates!
