Sales Points

  • Kylie’s two previous books sold like hotcakes! Fish Jam was reprinted 3 times!
  • For families who fell in love with Chip and Fish Jam
  • Great for encouraging imaginative play
  • Easy to read or sing with the same mitre as One, Two Buckle my Shoe
  • Playful repetition of the rhyme to encourage reading and involvement
  • Gender-neutral. Pirates could easily be boys or girls and the “Dad” pirate serves up dinner after a hard session of pirating.
