9780761462477: Pirates, Ho!

We are pirates, pirates, ho! Swashbuckling pirates sail the seas, braving storms, battles, and other pirates! From the first mate down to the cabin boy, they are rascals through and through. But at night, by the light of the moon, they tell each other ghost stories and guess who ends up being scared? Stephen Gilpin’s hand-drawn and digitally colored artwork is a bold, perfect match with Sarah L. Thomson’s rollicking, rhyming text.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Thomson's unpredictable verse should be rehearsed before being read aloud to maximize its impact and its humor. For example, this is one such bouncy passage: "A skull keeps watch from our flag of bones./Our swords are steel and our hearts are stone/as we send our foes to Davy Jones./We are pirates, pirates, ho!" The language is littered with terms like "thieving," "lying," "rascally," and "cut-throat"—plus the ever-popular "avast" and "ahoy." Gilpin's wacky cartoons have a retro, take-no-prisoners abandon. The motley crew members run up riggings, make enemies walk the plank, drive their ship through perilous seas, and have a generally threatening appearance—until one takes a closer look at their faces and postures, which are just plain adorable. The most conspicuous dent in the pirates' armor presents itself in the gloom of night, when they tell each other ghost stories by the light of the eerie, cratered moon. Eyes widen, mouths fall open, muscles tense: "We are pirates, pirates—YIKES!" Although pirate books abound, this funny, fabulously illustrated rhyme is certainly worth adding.—Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY
