Synopsis

Rufus Goes to Sea by Kim Griswell

Ahoy-Pirate Pig on board! What does a book-loving pig like Rufus do when school's out for summer? He turns to his favourite stories for inspiration, of course! And before long, he's dreaming of days filled with adventure and nights under blankets of stars. It's the pirate life for him, matey. But Captain Wibblyshins says: no pigs on pirate ships! After all, pigs get tangled in the rat lines, they picnic in the crow's nest, and worst of all, they even wipe their chins with the Jolly Roger. Can Rufus convince the Captain that he's no landlubber swine? And could his ticket to piratehood be reading? Kids will love seeing Rufus conquer new worlds in this delightful companion to Rufus Goes to School (9781454904168).

Reviews

Praise for RUFUS GOES TO SCHOOL: . . . this is a pure porcine pleasure. Booklist .. .so charming it could be enjoyed at any time of year . . . Griswell's storytelling has just the right amount of repetition . . . And Gorbachev's pen, ink and watercolor pictures are timelessly appealing . . . it brings to mind Garth Williams, David McPhail and Maurice Sendak. New York Times online
