How to Be a Pirate (Little Golden Books)

by Sue Fliess (Author) Nikki Dyson (Illustrator)

Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

Ahoy, landlubber! Come with me.

Board me ship upon the sea!

Not a pirate? Don't know how?

Ye can learn to be one now!

Little landlubbers get to earn their sea legs on a pirate ship amidst the goofiest pirates ever. There's lingo to learn (Gangway! Blimey! Yo-ho-ho!), a pirate look to choose (Pick a parrot for your arm. Every pirate's lucky charm!), and most importantly, pirate rules to learn (No more toothpaste! Farewell, bath! Once ye choose the pirate path!).

This rollicking read-aloud will be a hit among boys, girls, and parents alike!
