My Father the Great Pirate by Davide Cali


My Father the Great Pirate by Davide Cali

When I was a child, my father went away. He came home only once a year, in the summer for two weeks. He smelled of the sea, my father. That's because he was...A great pirate. The amazing stories Dad tells of life with his pirate crew fire up his young son's imagination. But then, one year, Dad doesn't return home. Now it's his son's turn to make an amazing journey of his own - to find his father. Soon he will discover a secret beyond anything he has imagined so far. From the award-winning creators of The Little Eskimo, and the acclaimed author of The Bear with the Sword, What is this Thing Called Love? and The Enemy.
