Are You the Pirate Captain? by Gareth P. JonesFirst mate Hugh has got the whole crew and the pirate ship ready, but they can't set sail until they find a captain! Come on this salty adventure as Hugh and his scurvy sea dogs try to find the perfect pirate for the job. Rather than a peg leg or a hook, it turns out what their captain needs is the brains to lead!
-color acrylic illustrations provide lots of fun and cartoonish detail, and they are a clever companion to Jones
-shanty-like verses. Booklist The text bounces along in rhyme, swishing readers along to a satisfying end. It just begs to be read aloud! Books for Keeps Revel in the rhythm and rhyme of this colourful tale. Early Years Educator A jaunty pirating mystery -- Fiona Noble The Bookseller With its jaunty rhyming telling and gigglesome visuals, this swashbuckling tale, complete with sea shanty is likely to appeal to would-be young sea dogs especially those who enjoy a book where things are not quite as they seem.
