Everything I Know about Piratesby Tom Lichtenheld
Synopses & Reviews
In this hilarious look at the scoundrels of the sea, Lichtenheld explains why pirates dress the way they do (to look mean), what they eat (school cafeteria food), and how to get a pirate name (from the Pirate Name Chart!). Full color.
"The off-the-cuff commentary maintains a rapid-fire, gag-a-minute pace that dips into the kind of crudeness certain youngsters crave." Publishers Weekly
"The book spans several ages because of these references, the blend of street and pirate lingo, the delivery of text with an attitude, and just a touch of the bathroom humor children love." Children's Literature
Pirates will often carry their knives in their mouths, although the practice is frowned upon by the American Dental Association.
About the Author
Tom Lichtenheld has always enjoyed getting other people's kids all wound-up and silly, then sending them back home to their parents. One day, he realized he could get lots of other people's kids all wound-up and silly by writing children's books. His first book, Everything I Know About Pirates, received many rave reviews, and was selected by Newsweek magazine as one of the best children's books of 2000. Tom's favorite review is from a lady who said the book was so funny it made her snort iced tea out her nose, which he considers the highest praise a children's book could ask for.
