Pirating isn’t the life for everyone, but Gran says it’s a career more girls should think about.

Meet Gran – who’s been a pirate since she was a young girl! With a pet crocodile who sleeps under her bed and a wicked sense of humour, knowing Gran is never dull! This witty and quirkily illustrated book will take kids on a rollicking journey of pirating fun, and adults will struggle to contain their giggles.”

WINNER of the BBC RaW 60-Second Story Writing Competition.


“A feisty story, with plenty of pratfalls that older children will appreciate – and some gentle feminism to please their mothers.”

Time Out

“Rose Forshall’s comic-style illustrations provide a treasure trove of clues to Gran’s piratical past… Geraldine Durrant’s swashbuckling story of Gran’s escapades and how she met and married Grandpa is awash with witty asides and humour.”

Books for Keeps

Pirate Gran […] is indisputable truth, picture book confirmation, that grannies were once unbridled girls, bold maidens, bodacious damsels, not homespun grannies knitting in their rockers.”

– Harold Walters, the Southern Gazette

“There are lots of clever details in the cartoon-style pictures to engage young readers. Adults will find a chuckle or two as well. Highly recommended.”

– Lori Austin, Resource Links
