Everything I know about pirates

Simon & Schuster Books for young readers

32 Pages. Ages 4-10 (but even adults love it!)

Why do pirates always wear eye patches? Where do pirates go to get their ears pierced? How do pirates keep their underwear from getting mixed up when they sail off to summer pirate camp? You're not the only one who wonders these things. I wondered about them so much, I had to write a book to get to the bottom of it all. The result is an encyclopedia of all things piratical, packed with silly pictures and satire from fore to aft.

"The 'History of the Skull and Crossbones' made me snort iced tea out my nose!"
