A hilarious read-aloud picture book for any child aged 3–6 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? A witty and poignant tale by rising star Ruth Quayle and with artwork by award-winning Deborah Allwright, illustrator of The Night Pirates and There is No Dragon in This Story.
