4 stars- A Really Fun Read

A funny rhyming story about the silly things pirates do when they go to school.

Pirates and their parrots go to school, and it's time to hang up their swords and have fun. They learn reading and math, and they bring pirate treasure for show-and-tell. For pirates, going to school is as much fun as a game of "walk the plank"!

Who would have ever thought pirates would like to go to school. They themselves sing, "Yo ho ho, we are so cool. We are pirates and we love school." I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed this book, as did my kids. It's a fun read with rhyming words and great illustrations. I'm a fan of any book that is not only hilarious, but one that receives a lot non stop laughs from my kids. Best of all, these pirates are FUN, enjoy learning and will make your kids wish they could go to school with pirates.

Whether you're looking for a book for your young pirate fan, wanting a fun book to read at home or school, I'd recommend picking this fantastic book up.
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
