Avast ye landlubbers! Here be Neil Gaiman reading Pirate Stew for Talk Like a Pirate Day...

Neil Gaiman reads Pirate Stew for International Talk Like a Pirate Day (illustrated by Chris Riddell)

Arrr, today be International Talk Like a Pirate Day! To celebrate, we're hosting a video of author Neil Gaiman reading from his hilarious picture book Pirate Stew, illustrated by Chris Riddell. You can also learn to talk like a pirate with Neil in a series of clips shared below and download a free activity pack here:

This swashbuckling and side-splitting rhyming story is all about what happens when your babysitter turns out to be a pirate. It's also a cautionary tale with a valuable lesson about the dangers of consuming food prepared by pirates!

Pirate Stew has just been released in paperback and is available everywhere books are sold.

I love hearing writers read from their own work and the colourful characters and their accompanying chaos are even more dynamic when this story is read by Neil - enjoy!
