How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long

June 30, 2010 - 10:38 pm 1 Comment

Jeremy Jacob gets invited to be a pirate on the high seas with Braid Beard and his crew when the pirates see his sand castle on the beach and realize what a good digger he is. They have treasure to bury and he is just the person they need to help them dig the hole. Jeremy loves the pirate life…the sea chanteys, the lack of vegetables on board and that pirates don’t have to brush their teeth. All is going well until it’s bedtime and Jeremy realizes that pirates don’t read bedtime stories (they don’t have any books at all actually) and they don’t tuck kids in at night either. Jeremy does figure out a way to help them though and also figures out a way to get home in time for his soccer game, too.

    We’ve read Pirates don’t change diapers about a hundred times, but not this one. Hmmm. How could that be.
