Description

Princess Bea isn t like other princesses she prefers pirate ships above tea parties, the salty sea over silly dolls. But what's a landlocked princess to do?

Ahoy, Captain Jack to the rescue When the captain offers Bea a place aboard his ship, it's a dream come true until she's put to work swabbing the decks and making dinner for the crew. Can a princess like Bea put her royal gifts to work and make the pirates see that she's seaworthy after all or will they make her walk the plank?

Pirate Princess is a raucous tale of girl power on the high seas, from author Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen and illustrator Jill McElmurry.



Praise For Pirate Princess

“The deft, engaging verse interspersed with pirate lingo is complemented neatly by McElmurry’s precise and detailed illustrations .... A winning combination of smart and silly, this yarn will make a welcome addition to princess and pirate storytimes, as well as a good choice for one-on-one sharing.”
-Kirkus Reviews

Praise for HAMPIRE!: “Building suspense and a sense of nocturnal dread, Bardhan-Quallen’s (The Hog Prince) rhymes are filled with puns (’”We’re sitting ducks,” the duck announced’), and the antics of the frantic duck and the animals he rouses should have readers laughing.”
-Publishers Weekly

Praise for HAMPIRE!: “Kids will feast on this deliciously scary tale over and over. ”
-Kirkus Reviews

Praise for HAMPIRE!: “Fine’s paintings exaggerate the animals’ terror to comic effect (funniest is the pony cowering in the corner), and his canted angles give this just the right absurdist tone.”
-ALA Booklist
