Praise For How I Became a Pirate…
"Caldecott Honor-winner Shannon spices up this spirited pirate tale with vivid, appropriately zany acrylics."
"Long's dry, tongue-in-cheek humor serves as an ideal springboard for Shannon's gleefully madcap illustrations."
"Shannon's illustrations... are a page-turning glory. Long's clever and spirited text leaves other pirate books in the bilge."
"Readers will be blown away by this rowdy gang, depicted in richly robust, humorous paintings."
"A roaring good read."
