Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Shiver me timbers ... A wickedly sinful peek at life on the rolling seas.

Did you know that some pirates are big and strong while others are tall and thin and cunning? Pirates can come in many different shapes and sizes, but all are very, very wicked If you want to be a pirate, you'll need an eye patch, a polka-dot handkerchief, a wooden leg or hook, earrings...and this book

Did you know that the pirate code stipulates that pirates can never be kind to children? Do you know where pirates work? Actually, pirates sail the Seven Seas looking for ships to rob, so they usually don't make it home for dinner. And sometimes, when the captain gets really angry, a pirate will be thrown overboard, so it's a good idea to take lessons in walking the plank.

Pirates also spend a lot of time looking for treasure. It can be buried deep in the ocean or stashed away on a treasure island. Pirates often meet up with sea monsters or typhoons or marauding buccaneers — but they don't get danger pay

Another thing about pirates: they don't even buy their own ships They usually just steal other people's. That's why their ships have nice names like Saucy Sue.

There's so much more to say about pirates (not the least of which is that they like to drink lots of grog and then sing pirate songs). Children will devour the information in this book. It is funny and entertaining, amusingly twisted, and will appeal to that insatiable interest in the wicked world of pirates. With such a warped take on the topic, only an irreverent illustrator like Lucy Blackheart could do it justice.

Synopsis:

A humorous picture book that goes over all the elements of a pirates life.
