PLUNGE INTO THE PIRATE POOL by Caryl Hart and Ed Eaves, reviewed by Tamsyn Murray

Young Albie gets home from a long day at school and no sooner has he settled down to read his book than Mum tells him it's time to go swimming. But this is no ordinary trip to the pool - when Albie dives down into the dark depths, he discovers the seaweed is hiding all kind of watery delights. Soon, he's hunting for treasure with Captain Cuttlefish and his crew in a shark-shaped submarine and whooshing around on a sea-scrambler.

Plunge Into The Pirate Pool is the fourth picture book offering from Caryl Hart and Ed Eaves to feature the adorable Albie and the fun just keeps on coming. Kids will love the colourful illustrations, full of piratical and undersea detail, and the text doesn't skimp on the action. Fans of Albie will be glad to see that he's making more new friends and exploring his fertile imagination in a new and exciting adventure. My little one certainly loves seeing the same character across the different books and the first book in the series, Supermarket Zoo, is a firm favourite in our house. I have no doubt that Plunge Into The Pirate Pool will soon become just as well thumbed and look forward to seeing what this pairing come up with next.

Aimed at 3+ years (although my 20 month old loves it)
