Pirate & Hoopoe
by Diarmid Cammell
illustrated by Karima Cammell

“Wall Street meets The Jungle Book” is how some people describe Pirate & Hoopoe. The talking animals of Spring Valley have lived in peace for centuries, but change is afoot when a rapacious band of developers begins investigations into how to most profitably exploit this enchanted place. Through good sense, wits, and a bit of magic, the animals show the men how to discover nature’s true gifts.
