Sunk! on the Underground

Sunk!, by Rob Biddulph

The Book Fairies had a treat in store for bookish buccaneers on the Underground this week. With telescopes, treasure maps and Aye-phones to hand, they hid copies of Sunk! by Rob Biddulph at stations across London.

About Sunk!

Penguin Blue is back, in a swashbuckling new adventure about pirates, treasure, and friendship! A pirate hat. A sunny day. For Penguin Blue a game to play.

Your favourite Penguin and his friends are back in a new adventure, and this time they’re pirates – ARRRRR!

Sailing the seven seas in search of treasure, Captain Blue and his friends are unexpectedly SUNK! But with a shipwreck to explore and a mysterious stranger on a desert island to meet, they might still find some treasure after all.
