A Pirates Mother Goose
10 Jan. 2015
Albert Whitman and Company
This selection of popular Mother Goose rhymes is given a delightful pirate makeover! What happens when the cat gives a mate his fiddle? The cabin boy dances a jig and the scalawags waltz in the brig! And Pretty Polly Pirate flies through the town squawking through the locks "are the children safe in bed? There be pirates at the docks!" From Rock-a-By, Pirate to Rub-a-Dub-Dub (three swabs in a tub), this collection is sure to inspire the poetic pirate in everyone!
"The rambunctious cartoon-style art does its share of the heavy lifting, presenting a nicely diverse array of salty sea dogs (even girls!) that exude boisterous vim and vigor Here be a collection that pint-sized pirates will be pleased to return to again and again." Kirkus Reviews, July 15, 2015"
