I came across this story when I was in my early 20s, working in a book shop, when it was first published It was a sensation, written by a 5 and a half year old girl, and illustrated by Jill McDonald, famous for her work in "Puffin Post" (which is where Janet Aitchison's tale first appeared), and later her own "Maggy. Scraggle Loves the Beautiful Ice-Cream Man", which is the greatest frog romance tale ever! Now, in my late 60s, both these books are long out of print (ALAS!), and very difficult to find out anything about, if it were not for valiant nostalgic bloggers

Here’s her guest piece about the story, and the full text is reproduced belo. was amazed and amused to see Frank Key’s piece about The Pirates’ Tale on The Dabbler – it went out of print nearly 30 years ago and I scarcely think about it these days.

But as my tale is with the present rather than with the past, I will not stop to describe how, when it was called Mileta, Saint Paul landed on the island, – how the Vandals and Goths took possession of it, and were driven out by Belisarius, – how in 1530, the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem, driven away from Rhodes, here settled, – how.

Take one inventive child - Janet Aitchison, the jacket discreetly notes, was born in 1962 - and five bad pirates and expect the preposterous: a battle with a dwarf army (""Who knows which side won?""); a whale and a shark and a pirate-pinching crab; a cat laid out by eating a rat (""The. pirates looked sad""), a mouse magicked by eating cheese; pirates turned into frogs, pirates taken with mumps; and finally, fatally, pirates doomed by their own greed.
