In the sequel to the award winning Class Two at the Zoo, pesky pirates plot to take over Class Three's school trip to the sea. But don't worry... rescue is at hand!
On the day Class Three went to sea, they saw donkeys dancing on the quay. They saw soggy sea lions skimming stones, but they didn't see the skull and crossbones! Watch Class Three as they sail away, unaware of the pirates in their wake! Will they become helpless captives, or will they manage to outwit the fearsome crew?

A visit to the zoo turns suddenly perilous for a rambunctious class in this bouncy cautionary tale... Just the ticket for reading prior to a class trip. - Kirkus Reviews
The anaconda in this meaty tale could possibly do with a makeover in the predictable behaviour department. Not that I'd change the story one jot. There is something immensely satisfying about a snake full of children. - The Bookseller Crow
