In this New York Times bestseller illustrated by Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator David Shannon, a boy sets off on a pirate adventure--with surprising results!
When Braid Beard's pirate crew invites Jeremy Jacob to join their voyage, he jumps right on board. Buried treasure, sea chanteys, pirate curses--who wouldn't go along?
Soon Jeremy Jacob knows all about being a pirate. He throws his food across the table and his manners to the wind. He hollers like thunder and laughs off bedtime. It's the heave-ho, blow-the-man-down, very best time of his life. But then Jeremy Jacob finds out what pirates don't do. . . .
Caldecott Honor illustrator David Shannon teams up with Melinda Long for a hilarious look at the finer points of pirate life. Shiver me timbers--it's a pirate adventure!
How I Became a Pirate is a swashbuckling adventure with fantastically silly illustrations.
