How I Became a Pirate
How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long and David Shannon (Harcourt Inc., 2003). Large format hardback with dust jacket in Like New condition.
In this New York Times bestseller illustrated by Caldecott Honor–winning illustrator David Shannon, a boy sets off on a pirate adventure—with surprising results!
When a pirate ship sails by, young 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 illustrations.
