How the Pirates Turned the Tide – A Children’s Picture Book by Greta Yorke, Illustrated by Maggie Bolton

Ayr Writers’ Club members, Greta Yorke and Maggie Bolton have teamed up once again for their very latest children’s picture book, the fabulous How the Pirates Turned the Tide.

Traditional skulduggery is given a bright contemporary twist in this entertaining book, as our hapless pirates are encouraged by a mere young child (and gran) to take very good care of themselves, and the environment, on the high seas.

Addressing healthy lifestyle, recycling, self-sufficiency and plastic pollution, the 3-8 year old audience of young readers will surely subtly begin to ahoy their way to those better answers.



“Great story with good characters, fanciful and credible at the same time: just what a good story should be.”


Available at a variety of local outlets and online, Greta and Maggie are happy to make copies of How the Pirates Turned the Tide available for fellow club members, any week (£6).
