52 pages of full colour illustrations.
Written and illustrated by Craig Phillips, this is the first in The Adventures of Jack Scratchseries of comics about a pirate cat.
Craig Phillips is a professional illustrator, working for publishers all around the world from his studio by the shores of beautiful Lake Taupo in New Zealand.
Several years ago Craig’s daughter asked him to make a book just for her. When he asked her what she’d like it to be about she said “cats!”, then “pirates!” and then, “pirate-cats!” and so Jack Scratch was born and developed over many meal times and deep discussions about all the types of things pirate-cats might get up to.
So, if you have a child that likes cats or pirates or pirate-cats, then they will love this book!
This is the first book in the series and helps to establish some of the main characters that will carry through in the following books. The second book ‘The Curse of the Kraken!’ is already well under way.
A beautifully illustrated A4 hard cover book with a stunning cloth spine. It is printed in full colour and created with classic comic series like Tin Tin and Asterix in mind.
