Hairy Mole and his noble pirate crew have entered a team in the one hundred and first Pirate Olympics. Can the Littleton pirates beat the other three pirate teams to win gold? They're up against The Daisy Headhunters, captained by Wee Gladys the Mad, The Pirate Pensioners and The Whiskers Gang, led by Captain Bill Whiskers, who has a laugh that could make a puppy cry. Of course the Pirate Olympic events all need special skills. There's Walking the Plank, Jumping the Nearly Dead Man's Chest and Barrel Rolling. Will our clever, smelly pirates paarp their way to victory?

This is laugh-out-loud fun with Hairy Mole and his silly pirate crew! As with all four titles in the Hairy Mole series, this book is overflowing with excitement and adventure, the illustrations practically leaping off the page and the text struggling to stay still. The playful layouts offer a reduced amount of text on each page, making it even more suitable for newly independent readers.
