    I've never heard of these. Hopefully I must be too young or they never penetrated my neck of the woods.

    Default Pirate reading books

    I have children that are going through school now and a lot of their homework is reading. I used to love reading the pirate books at school. Anyone remember these? There were different coloured pirates depending on your level of expertise. I remember getting excited going from one colour to another! Anyone know if they are still in print, what they were called or where I can get them from?

    OMG! That brings back memories and doesn't the book look dated!? Feel old now. Going to try and track them down from somewhere! Thanks for this....

    Hi ,
    I remember these books. I was only thinking about them the other day. Like your self i used to look forwards to going from one colour book to another colour. I would love to own a set just for the memories. Also do you remember the Alpha and beta maths books we used to use in maths lessons?.
