Description

Roger is a lousy pirate. In fact, whenever there is any real pirating to do, the other pirates scowl and send him away.

Roger wishes he could think of something - anything - that would prove he is a good pirate. So when, in the middle of a great battle, Roger has a jolly idea, no-one - not even Roger himself - has a clue that he will soon change the face of pirating forever

This is the first picture book both written and illustrated by Brett Helquist, who is best known for his drawings in Lemony Snicket's bestselling "A Series of Unfortunate Events." Here, his full-colour spreads capture fierce battles, magnificent ships, and the warmth and humour of one very unusual pirate.

Ages 4-7
