How I Became A Pirate

Item# C9777
7.00 $12.95
What young boy wouldn't want to take up Braid Beard's offer to join him and his fellow pirates on their voyage? Why, there are manners to be ignored, bedtime to be laughed off, and a world where basically anything goes — as long as it doesn't involve behaving like a civilized human being. Ay! Braid Beard and his men know how to live! And when they invite young Jeremy Jacob along to help them bury their treasure, he can't resist. Besides, his mother, father and baby sister are totally preoccupied at the beach on that morning the pirate ship drifted so close to shore.

And so begins an unforgettable trip on which everyone talks with their mouths full, carrots and spinach aren't even allowed on board, nobody says please or thank you, nobody takes baths or brushes their teeth. (Be sure to note the pirates' disgustingly green teeth!)

Jeremy Jacob loves the way these guys live. They don't do anything they don't want to, except maybe swab the decks. He wants to be a pirate forever — until he finds out what pirates don't do — like tucking in young laddies and reading them a book.

What fun this book is! The illustrations will shiver your timbers. Vibrantly alive and full of color and expression, they are a perfect match for this delightful and off-beat book.

(Note: These books are considered ''Imperfect'' as they have a black ink mark on the heel. Publishers often do this when a book goes out of print.)
