How I Became A Pirate ( IRMA S AND JAMES H BLACK AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN CHILDREN'S LITERATURE (AWARDS)) by Melinda Long
about this item
While playing at the beach, a young boy is taken in by a band of pirates who request that he use his extraordinary sand shoveling skills to help them bury their treasure. At first the boy loves the freedom of life among the pirates (especially not eating spinach and having no set bedtime). However, he soon discovers that he might, indeed, be a landlubber at heart. Color illustrations accompany the text.
Jeremy Jacob joins Braid Beard and his pirate crew and finds out about pirate language, pirate manners, and other aspects of their life.
