Description



About the Book



A Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator teams up with a witty storyteller for this hilarious pirate adventure starring a little boy who joins Braid Beard's crew on a fantastic voyage. Full color.



Book Synopsis



In this New York Times bestseller illustrated by Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator David Shannon, a boy sets off on a pirate adventure--with surprising results!

When a pirate ship sails by, young Jeremy learns how to say "scurvy dog," sing sea chanteys, and throw food . . . but he also learns that there are no books or good night kisses on board: "Pirates don't tuck." A swashbuckling adventure with fantastically silly illustrations.



Review Quotes



A roaring good read.
-- "Teaching K-8" (9/1/2003 12:00:00 AM)

Caldecott Honor-winner Shannon spices up this spirited pirate tale with vivid, appropriately zany acrylics.
-- "Child Magazine" (9/1/2003 12:00:00 AM)

Long's dry, tongue-in-cheek humor serves as an ideal springboard for Shannon's gleefully madcap illustrations.
-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)" (7/7/2003 12:00:00 AM)

Readers will be blown away by this rowdy gang, depicted in richly robust, humorous paintings.
-- "School Library Journal" (11/20/2003 12:00:00 AM)

Shannon's illustrations... are a page-turning glory. Long's clever and spirited text leaves other pirate books in the bilge.
