Moving through Books and Bites Bingo, I am finally able to tick off another category. A book by Neil Gaiman, and for this I am using new release Pirate Stew, illustrated by Chris Riddell.
This is a delightful story, told in verse form that all ages can enjoy. It is filled with pirates and diverse characters, and fun, magic and so many other things, you’ll just have to read it yourself to get the full impact of this delightful tale.
As of this post, I only have four squares to tick off, and some have books assigned to them, and at least one I need to decide what to read, but think I know what I will go for.
This is a story to be treasured. Neil Gaiman has taken the idea of pirates and turned it into something inventive and unique – read the book to find out what happens! Onto filling out the rest of my categories and challenges!
