Captain Stan and Tiny McKaw are rough-and-tumble pirates. Whether it's searching for treasure or battling on the high seas, this adventurous duo is up for anything. But then Tiny's parents come to visit. Suddenly, the big pirate ship starts to feel very small. Mrs. McKaw is always nagging--even in her sleep Mr. McKaw insists on telling endless stories. And they both make the cook cry when they insult his food After they stick Tiny in a very un-pirate-like suit and tie, Captain Stan has had enough. "Get off my ship " he orders. Only moments later, though, a massive storm envelops the boat. Will the McKaws forgive Stan's outburst and help to save the ship and crew? From writer/illustrator Ged Adamson (Elsie Clarke and the Vampire Hairdresser) comes this hilarious story of family and forgiveness. Adamson's familiar humor makes Meet the McKaws a riot for everyone who has ever dealt with the trials of family. Accompanied by playful illustrations and bursting with color, this story is a reminder that while no family is perfect, a family's love is irreplaceable.
