Both Lucas’ over-the-top yarn and loopy larger-than-life ink-and-watercolor cartoon illustrations wink at readers while producing one clever surprise after another.

Synopsis

Shiver me timbers and swash me buckles — it’s time for an adventure with the Skeleton Pirate!

The Skeleton Pirate is the Terror of the Seas, and he’ll never be beaten! That is, until he gets beaten by an unruly bunch of pirates and is thrown overboard. Down in the depths of the sea, he is rescued by a beautiful mermaid, only to be swallowed by a whale. But the whale has a tummy ache from all the other things he has swallowed — like a golden ship full of treasure. With echoes of Pinocchio and Treasure Island, this picture book is full of humor and irrepressible energy, a perfect adventure for little would-be pirates.
