DELIGHTFUL KIDS BOOKS | 'Wee Granny's Magic Bag and the Pirates' by Elizabeth McKay and Maria Bogade (****)

Hey guys and happy Thursday! Today I am thrilled to be sharing with you another brilliant children's picture book - this time it is Wee Granny's Magic Bag and the Pirates by Elizabeth McKay and Maria Bogade. This is another brilliant children's book by Floris Books, delightfully Scottish, and such a joy to read aloud (cue pirate dialect!) 

Wee Granny's Magic Bag and the Pirates is a fantastic book all about adventure and magic (with some pirate action sprinkled in, of course). Harry and Emily are off to Arran on holiday with their beloved Wee Granny, but of course there are obstacles along the way... however no problem is too big for Wee Granny or her magic bag. However, when some pirates need help finding their buried treasure, does Wee Granny's magic bag have the ability to help them?

I was kindly sent Wee Granny's Magic Bag and the Pirates by Floris Books in exchange for an honest review :)

Intrigued? Check out the blurb here...


Get ready for excitement and surprises as Wee Granny (Scotland's very own Mary Poppins!) and her magic tartan bag set off on another adventure. Wee Granny is going on holiday with Emily and Harry to Arran but they've missed the ferry. Don't worry; Wee Granny's got just the thing in her magic bag -- a rowing boat! But shiver me timbers, on their journey Wee Granny and the children meet Captain Shoogle and his pirate crew. Does Wee Granny have anything in her magic bag to help the pirates find their buried treasure? You'll never guess what unbelievable thing she'll pull out next! The third book in the hugely popular Wee Granny's Magic Bag series is a hilarious tartan-Jolly Rodger mash-up with plenty of fun for pirates and landlubbers alike. Turn each page to reveal a brilliant mix of colourful illustrations and an exciting story full of surprises!

This book has everything a child who loves stories could ask for - loveable characters, packed with adventure and excitement and... pirates! The story is gloriously heartwarming and thrilling and is sure to keep little ones entertained from beginning to end. This was such an enjoyable book to read and the illustrations by Maria Bogade really made the story come to life. Wee Granny is such a brilliant character and is definitely Scotland's answer to Mary Poppins... but as far as I know Mary Poppins never had to help out a band of pirates!

Wee Granny's Magic Bag and the Pirates is a book that children of all ages will enjoy, and is the perfect book to take on your summer holiday this year to keep all of the little ones entertained, especially on those long car journeys...
