    On reading this book by Colin McNaughton I noticed immediately the diverse language and also the riveting and animated illustrations on every page The Jolly Roger is about a young boy Roger and his Mum, a horrible misery guts Everyone in the town calls Roger Jolly as he is always miserable and sad The story leads on to tell us that Rogers father, a farmer turned sailor, had went to sea but had never returned home That is why is mother was always so unhappy Rogers s mother was hard on hi On reading this book by Colin McNaughton I noticed immediately the diverse language and also the riveting and animated illustrations on every page The Jolly Roger is about a young boy Roger and his Mum, a horrible misery guts Everyone in the town calls Roger Jolly as he is always miserable and sad The story leads on to tell us that Rogers father, a farmer turned sailor, had went to sea but had never returned home That is why is mother was always so unhappy Rogers s mother was hard on him and he very much wanted to flee in order to escape her constants commands and orders One day he saw an advert that had been placed in the grocery shop for a cabin boy to work with pirates The pirates captured Roger The adventure continues on as Roger boards the ship and becomes accustom to life on a pirate ship from giving him and christening him officially as the Jolly Roger to finding his dad who had been hit with amnesia and bringing him home to his Mum who smiles for the first time in the book The story ended with a party for three days welcoming home Rodgers Dad who he had safely escaped from the pirates and in the end they all lived happily ever after how most fairytales should end Interestingly the book provides a great selection of pirates so role play and also drama could be used in a classroom scenario in order for the book to come alive The book is a fun way for kids and parents to get involved as it allows them to speak and use the pirate language and accents for example Shiver me tonsils and avast me wooden leg Ooogh aargh This also adds to the humour that can be spotted numerously throughout the book I would highly recommend this book, I believe that the reader would be intrigued by the excitement of the pirates lives, the accents and the happy ending It s a real pleaser There is also a great use of adverbs and the tone in the book is one of anticipation and animation The illustrations visually produce the story effectively we can see the pirates dirty ship and their ghastly attire McNaughton s word choice and imagery were all excellently presented in this children s tale It s a must read

    Roger isn t jolly, he s miserable While he drowns in melancholia, his mother suffers from clinical depression following the sudden disappearance of Roger s father, who she believes has absconded on account of her dour demeanour On the assumption that no other life could be worse than the one he leads, Roger joins the crew of a pirate ship Surprisingly for him, life at sea with a band of brutalised and badly educated brigands does not elevate his mood in any respect After all that scene setti Roger isn t jolly, he s miserable While he drowns in melancholia, his mother suffers from clinical depression following the sudden disappearance of Roger s father, who she believes has absconded on account of her dour demeanour On the assumption that no other life could be worse than the one he leads, Roger joins the crew of a pirate ship Surprisingly for him, life at sea with a band of brutalised and badly educated brigands does not elevate his mood in any respect After all that scene setting mental illness, there s a plot twist of some tunnel lighting potential, when Roger deduces that the ship s cook is in fact his very own father, but as Roger s kidnapped paterfamilias is suffering from some form of post traumatic amnesia, Roger probably wishes he was related to the ship s doctor instead
