Staff Reviews


Tom climbed the hill every day to watch out for pirates. He waited and waited. But every time he thinks that he sees them and shouts the alarm. no one is there. In this sly take on the traditional folktale of the boy who cried wolf, you will laugh in delight and want to read it again. Bright illustrations make this one a keeper.

— Valerie

Tom has a very important job: every day he climbs to the top of the hill and watches for pirate ships. When he rings his bell and shouts “PIRATES!” a few too many times — even though there’s no pirate ship — the villagers start to get tired of hiding. But what will happen when the pirates really do show up?

About the Author


When John Condon was a child, he was always drawing, so his mother and most of his teachers assumed he would become an illustrator or a designer. He did become a designer, and now he’s an author, too. John Condon was born and raised in London, but he currently lives on its outskirts where it’s a little leafier.

Matt Hunt is an illustrator whose work includes Would You Dare? written by Min Flyte. He works in a variety of media, using paints, pens, crayons, and digital design to create his artwork, and loves to draw anything and everything. Matt Hunt lives in England with his wife.
