Take one pirate adventure, add to that a text to read aloud to the tune of 'Row, Row, Row Your Boat', and you have the perfect preschool combination from the bestselling Nick Sharratt and talented newcomer Katrina Charman.
Katrina Charman wanted be a children's writer ever since she was eleven and her school teacher set her class the task of writing an epilogue to Roald Dahl's Matilda. The experience ignited her love of reading and writing and a desire to be a children's author. In 2014 Katrina won the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators' Undiscovered Voices Competition. Since then she has written several young fiction titles for children, and Car, Car, Truck, Jeep was her first picture book and the start of a series with Bloomsbury and Nick Sharratt. Katrina lives in a small village in Berkshire with her husband and three children. Nick Sharratt is the bestselling illustrator of over 250 books for children including books by Dame Jacqueline Wilson, Julia Donaldson and Michael Rosen. His instantly recognisable art style has delighted children for years. Nick lives in Sussex and is the proud owner of a gold Blue Peter badge.
