Shiver me timbers and swash me buckles it's time for an adventure with the Skeleton Pirate
The Skeleton Pirate is the Terror of the Seas, and he ll never be beaten That is, until he gets beaten by an unruly bunch of pirates and is thrown overboard. Down in the depths of the sea, he is rescued by a beautiful mermaid, only to be swallowed by a whale. But the whale has a tummy ache from all the other things he has swallowed like a golden ship full of treasure. With echoes of "Pinocchio" and "Treasure Island," this picture book is full of humor and irrepressible energy, a perfect adventure for little would-be pirates.
