Are You the Pirate Captain?


Are You the Pirate Captain?
By Gareth P. Jones and Garry Parsons
Andersen Press, 2016. Picture Book.

First Mate Hugh and crew have gotten their ship ready to take to the sea. There is just one problem: they don’t have a captain since Scurvy Sea Dog Sid was eaten by a giant squid. As Hugh looks through his spy glass, he asks all who approach the ship if they are the new captain. When a guy who looks like the perfect sea captain with two gold teeth and a silver blade approaches, Hugh asks if he is the new captain. The man explains he is going to a dress-up party but he knows who would make best captain—the one who got the crew ready. Pirate fans will love this rhyming picture book which includes two sea shanties on the end pages.
