The Pirates Are Coming!

author: John Condon
illustrator: Matt Hunt

Tom has a very important job: every day he climbs to the top of the hill and watches for pirate ships. When he rings his bell and shouts “PIRATES!” a few too many times — even though there’s no pirate ship — the villagers start to get tired of hiding. But what will happen when the pirates really do show up?

author’s comments:
When John Condon was a child, he was always drawing, so his mother and most of his teachers assumed he would become an illustrator or a designer. He did become a designer, and now he’s an author, too. John Condon was born and raised in London, but he currently lives on its outskirts where it’s a little leafier.
