Arrrgh you ready for this jaunty collection of pirate poems and paintings? Includes audio!

Ahoy mateys—it’s time to hoist up the anchors and set sail with a pack of pesky pirates!

And all the while, picture book greats Douglas Florian and Robert Neubecker will keep pirate fans laughing from bow to stern with their signature sense of humor.
