Avast Ye Landlubbers!!

Ahoy mateys! In honor of international "talk like a pirate day"-- which be today-- I bring ye a hardy tale of pirate adventure! (I be writing in pirate-style, so ye may as well be reading in yer best pirate voice!)

How I Became a Pirate written by Melinda Long, illustrated by David Shannon

First off, I know me mate David Shannon would sooner walk the plank than put his name on a book fit for keelhauling! So, ye can be assured this here belongs in the treasure chest. The tale tells of our lad Jeremy Jacobs and how he becomes a buccaneer for a time. Jeremy revels in the raucous pirate ways, but he soon longs for the fineries home (like goodnight kisses). It's a sweet swashbuckling story sure to make any little lad or lassie grin. So ye best weigh anchor, hoist the mizzen, and get to readin' this book! Ye savvy?

Arrrrr! - One Eyed Whit
