About the author

Ruth Whenham

6 books7 followers
Ruth Whenham began her career as a freelance writer a short time before reaching her 40th birthday. To say it was something of a mid-life crisis would be absolutely true! A graduate of Human Psychology and a former employee of the National Health Service, Ruth now splits her time between writing, looking after her family (she has two children) and volunteering at her local Citizens' Advice Bureau.

Ruth combines jaunty rhyming verse, humour and great characters to create stories that are entertaining for young children and for their parents alike!

To date, Ruth has published six children's picture books; all of which have been illustrated by talented artist, Emma K.L. Hunt.

Here is a brief summary of Ruth's six books:

My Crazy Purple Pen - featuring a crazy purple pen (funnily enough!) and a whole host of other fun characters who get caught up in the magic pen's cheeky mischief.

The Day My Teacher Came to Tea - a story about a cheeky boy whose mean teacher comes to tea, and the farce that ensues.

Birthday Cake Disaster - a tale about a girl baking a cake with her dad, or at least trying to. It's okay, the ending is a happy one, despite the title!

Captain Sillyvoice and his Pirate Band - a swashbuckling adventure featuring the very amiable Captain Sillyvoice and his rather unusual crew. In this tale these awesome pirates find a way to have fun, be themselves and become a success on the high seas.

Captain Sillyvoice Takes to the Stage - the Captain and his crew return for another fun-filled adventure during which they find themselves up against the big and mean Captain Scaryscar in a singing competition. How will they and the other pirate stars of the show get on, and who will be crowned the Sea Shanty King?

Captain Sillyvoice and the Sea Monster - Captain Sillyvoice is in a spot of bother once again! A hungry sea monster is heading towards his ship and there seems to be no way past. Join in the fun as the ever-so-nice Captain and his awesome crew try to reach their fans over on Blue Banana Beach. They have a pirate poptastic show to perform after all.

After enjoying the antics of Captain Sillyvoice so much, we eagerly awaited the second book in the Captain Sillyvoice series. This did not disappoint! Once again we were swept along the high seas in this hillarious romp whilst Captain Sillyvoice and his crew set out to prove they were the best of the best. Really looking forward to reading further adventures in this series.

Brilliant second story in the Captain Sillyvoice series where the captain triumphs again. This is a real "feel good" story that will appeal to adults and children alike. Look out for the monkey and I do think that the author should include recipes for some of the tantalising dishes displayed on the bar menus!!!!!

Children will enjoy reading this superbly-crafted book featuring alliterative names of characters, text in verse, colorful illustrations bursting with detail, and interspersed sentences that call for reader-interaction.
Children will enjoy reading the book with friends and locating the mice, monkeys, and parrot.
I received this book free through the goodreads FIRST READS program.
