The Lovereading4Kids comment
“I’ll never be beaten!” boasts the skeleton pirate. But it turns out not be true... Bound in chains and tossed over board by his enemies, the Skeleton Pirate is set free by a mermaid before both are swallowed up by a passing Whale. How the skeleton pirate learns that there are better ways of behaving than fighting makes a delightful story and David Lucas’s illustrations are as striking as ever.
The Skeleton Pirate by David Lucas
Shiver me timbers and swash me buckles. It's time for an adventure with the Skeleton Pirate! The Skeleton Pirate is the Terror of the Seas and he'll never be beaten! Until, that is, he gets beaten by an unruly bunch of pirates and thrown overboard. Down in the depths of the sea he embarks on an adventure with a beautiful mermaid, a whale with tummy ache and a golden ship full of treasure... Full of humour and irrepressible energy this is the perfect picture book for all would-be little pirates! David Lucas is an extraordinary new talent in children's picture books - in 2008 he was named as one of The Big Picture campaign's Best New Illustrators.
