Pirates Activity Book by Melinda Long


Pirates Activity Book by Melinda Long

A heave-ho, high-seas adventure and activity book inspired by the bestselling picture books How I Became a Pirate and Pirates Don't Change Diapers written by Melinda Long and illustrated David Shannon.
This 36-page, full-color activity book includes:
- Temporary pirate tattoos
- Instructions to make a pirate hat, pirate eye patch, and treasure chest
- Puzzles, songs and coloring pages
- Talk like a pirate glossary
- Instructions and press-out cards for Cannonball! card game
...everything you need to become a pirate yourself!


Paired with Shannon's energetic acrylics of a colorful crew of pop-eyed, snaggly toothed pirates seen from a variety of zany viewpoints (including upside down) and a small boy who is clearly having the time of his life, this rollicking adventure is sure to be a favorite with the storytime crowd.
