The Pirate Who Was Scared of Birds

By Michelle Path

Children's | Paperback


Crackskull Jack is a fearsome pirate with a serious problem: one big fear of birds. Without a parrot, Jack is in danger of being ridiculed rather than feared, a fate no self-respecting pirate wants for themselves. Deciding to find a cure for his terrifying fear, Jack sails to the exotic Cove of Paradise to seek out a healer who can help him gain the respect of his troublesome crew. When Jack meets Penny Darkling, the mystical healer, he soon discovers she is a woman not to be messed with! What lies ahead when this fearsome pirate meets his match?



Michelle Path is an Australian children’s author. She has always been an avid reader and fondly recalls reading many wonderful books as a child. In primary school her class were asked to write and illustrate a book, and there her dream of becoming a writer was born. Michelle’s main goal is to encourage children to enjoy reading; she aims to write books that are fun to read but also have an educational slant or a moral to them. Many of her books contain themes such as caring for the environment and animals, along with a good dose of humour. When Michelle is not writing, she enjoys spending time with her kelpie, Ruffy, and riding her horses; she is often found competing in dressage competitions. She also enjoys spending time at the beach, walking her dogs, going to the theatre and seeing concerts. Michelle’s debut children’s picture book, Suki and the Seedling, was published in August 2014. Xalien the Purple Alien was the first of Michelle’s books to be published by Rowanvale Books, which was followed by the sequel, Xalien the Purple Alien: Xalien Goes to School. The Pirate Who Was Scared of Birds and Sham Subterranean and the Party Tea have also been released, with sequels to come.
