Avast ye maties! This Saturday, September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day! What better way to celebrate than with a booty of pirate themed books, like Bad Pirate written by Kari-Lynn Winters and illustrated by Dean Griffiths.

Captain Barnacle Garrick thinks that there is nothing worse than a good-hearted pirate, although his daughter, the mild-mannered August Garrick, is the apple of his eye. Augusta is shy, polite and selfless, and for a pirate, that is very, very, bad. It just might take one terrible storm, a ripped sail, a missing peg leg and a panicked crew before Augusta can prove that being selfless is a bold and saucy move after all. And that’s good, very good indeed.

“Wicked smart pacing and playful art tell the tale of a pirate too doggone loyal for her own good….In a story so packed with piratical jargon and growls that even the most staid and sorry landlubbers will become salty dogs while reading it, it’s Griffiths’ art that takes the wave-swept narrative to another level….Arrrrguably the best piratical dogfight you’ll ever sink your teeth into.”– Kirkus, starred review

Littered with salty sea speak and pirate slang, Bad Pirate is bad enough for kids and good enough for their parents. A fun and boldly illustrated romp through the seven seas, this storybook is a sure thing for the celebrations this weekend. Contact us to order yours today!
