Publisher Comments:

When the pirate crew turns up at Jeremy Jacob's house and accidentally wakes his baby sister, that wee scallywag howls louder than a storm on the high seas. Sure, there's buried treasure to be found, but nobody's digging up anything until Bonney Anne quits her caterwauling. So, quicker than you can say "scurvy dog," Braid Beard and his swashbuckling pirates become . . . babysitters? Blimey!

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;

This hilarious companion to How I Became a Pirate reveals that minding the nursery can be even more terrifying than walking the plank--especially if you're a pirate.

Review:

"Plucky young Jeremy Jacob is reunited with Captain Braid Beard and his crew of daft, dentally challenged buccaneers in a follow-up to the bestselling How I Became a Pirate. This time, Jeremy clearly has the upper hand: he won't let the pirates dig up the treasure they buried in his backyard at the end of the previous book until they help him placate his cranky baby sister, Bonney Anne (pirate aficionados will note that her name is a nod to real-life female pirate Anne Bonny). The story unfolds rather predictably — but just as entertainingly as the original: the pirates turn out to be washouts as nannies, jokes fly about dirty diapers and strained spinach, and, of course, 'the wee lass' Bonney Anne ends up being the key to recovering the treasure. But Long's piratical dialogue still delivers a juicy read-aloud: what reader of any age won't relish the opportunity to say 'Aargh!' or declare 'Rock on!' as the crew does in unison when Braid Beard orders them to rock Bonney Anne to sleep? And Shannon's voluptuously colorful and comic paintings runneth over with comic mayhem, sly details (somehow, the pirates manage to find a pirate show on Jeremy's TV) and no end of goofy expressions. Ages 3-7. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Mrs W, August 12, 2012 (view all comments by Mrs W)
Captain Braid Beard is back with his crew, paying a visit to Jeremy Jacob. Problem is, no one can search for treasure until Jeremy's baby sister is sleeping again. Plenty of laughs as the pirate crew 'babysitters' attempt to feed the baby (strained spinach)and diaper her (check out the poor dog). The illustrations are fabulous and my 2nd graders love to look closely at all the great details. This book is a huge hit in our classroom and we give it 5 'Arrrrrgh's', er...stars.
