A riotous, rip-roaring read for any child with a big imagination.
Sidney Green loves going on rip-roaring adventures with his dog, Jemima. Together, they race cars, sail all the way to Africa and build an enormous castle, complete with a moat full of crocodiles. But Captain Shipshape and his pirate band are NOT happy. They think it's time for Sidney Green to become a Proper Pirate - right now, not "in a minute". What will Sidney Green do?
When Ruth's three children aren't sending footballs whizzing past her ears and persuading her that sweets are healthy, they're saying funny things that she scribbles down and turns into stories.
Ruth used to be a writer and sub-editor on national newspapers and glossy magazines, but she's much happier working from home as a freelance writer.
