Pirates have green teeth—when they have any teeth at all. I know about pirates, because one day, when I was at the beach building a sand castle and minding my own business, a pirate ship sailed into view.
So proclaims Jeremy Jacob, a boy who joins Captain Braid Beard and his crew in this witty look at the finer points of pirate life by the Caldecott Honor–winning illustrator David Shannon and the storyteller Melinda Long. Jeremy learns how to say “scurvy dog,” sing sea chanteys, and throw food . . . but he also learns that there are no books or good night kisses on board: “Pirates don’t tuck.” A swashbuckling adventure with fantastically silly, richly textured illustrations that suit the story to a T.

MELINDA LONG is a teacher and the author of several picture books. She lives in Greenville, South Carolina.

DAVID SHANNON is the illustrator of many successful picture books. His numerous awards include a Caldecott Honor for No, David! He lives in Burbank, California.

  • How I Became a Pirate

    We found this book in the library and read it over and over and over and over....I'm sure any parent of a 4-7 year old will understand what that's like! We enjoyed the book so much that I bought it for my daughter and it has been read over and over and over... The pictures are great! The story is funny. Kids get into the day to day aspects of a pirates life. This would also be a great birthday gift for a 4-7 year old.
