Mike Phillips has been illustrating children’s books for twenty years, from picture books for the very young to the gruesome Horrible Histories. He lives in a small fishing village in England with his family and dog, who, believe it or not, is also named Poppy.
Poppy, the irresistible scalawag, navigates uncharted waters when she’s called on to share her treasure with a tiny new shipmate.
Poppy is lonely. Now that summer is over, Suzy and Tim have gone back to school and Mom and Dad are back at work. What’s a pirate dog to do when there’s no one around to help her bury treasure? When her family decides to get her a friend to keep her company, Poppy is thrilled. But when she meets her new shipmate, he is not at all what she expected — or wanted! Will mutiny ensue? In her second full-color early reader, best-selling author Liz Kessler steers a course through the sometimes tumultuous waters of sibling rivalry through the eyes of a very funny and slightly neurotic pup.
