Overview

It's time to send the animals rescued from the pirate circus home. Uncle Mac sets sail with amazing Esme and her fearless cousins on a journey to hot and cold and distant lands - from Scotland to Siberia to Peru! It's a voyage filled with excitement and danger. And dastardly pirates who will stop at nothing to recapture the animals. This is the third of Tamara Macfarlane's Esme stories which are perfect for newly confident readers to read by themselves, or for parents to read aloud. High in action and with plenty of humour, the stories are brought to life by Michael Fowkes' drawings on every double-page spread.

Author

As a child Tamara Macfarlane practically lived in Blackwell's Children's Bookshop in Oxford. Later in Cambridge she read more children's books whilst studying English and Education and specialising in Children's Literature. After a number of years spent as a literacy co-ordinator trying to persuade children in schools that the world inside books was generally a lot more interesting than the real world, Tamara had her first child and decided she would like to live in a children's bookshop again. As she couldn't find one that she liked she founded the award winning Tales on Moon Lane bookshop in Herne Hill, subsequently opening a second shop in Primrose Hill, filling it with even more of her favourite books.
