Written by Jacqueline Halsey & Carrie Muller • Illustrated by Paul G. Hammond
The long-awaited followup to the bestselling, gut-busting picture book The Terrible Horrible Smelly Pirate — this time with an environmental message!
“Peeee – Yew!” Mermaid had a problem. A terrible, horrible, smelly, problem.
The Terrible Horrible Smelly Pirate is back! And after discovering a secret treasure in Halifax Harbour, he’s not so smelly anymore — but Mermaid’s island is. The poor misty island is covered in people’s garbage! There are popped balloons, cups and buoys. Lobster pots, flip-flops and toys. Tires and straws, wrappers and strings, and lots and lots of plastic things…all tangled up in stinky dead seaweed. What’s she to do?
Just when it seems all is lost, she spots a rickety rackety pirate ship through the salt spray — and a not-so-terrible, horrible, smelly pirate and his crew! What if she could trick them into cleaning up her Terrible Horrible Smelly Beach?…
From the duo behind the bestselling The Terrible Horrible Smelly Pirate comes a quirky-fun follow up, with fresh and vibrant illustrations by artist Paul G. Hammond, and an environmental message that will inspire many a beach cleanup!
