No Pirates Allowed! Said Library Lou
Illustrated by Brian Ajhar
Perfect for 'Talk Like a Pirate Day' (celebrated internationally every Sept. 19th).
A book that will get kids excited about reading! Pirate Pete and his parrot, Igor, have met their match with feisty Library Lou. They learn that maybe gold, hmm…isn’t the best treasure after all.
(Scroll down for book trailer, Readers' Theatre, and teacher's guide.)
At Seabreezy Library, things were just right.
Booklovers were cozy. The sky was blue-bright
when—Shiver me timbers!—through Seabreezy's door
stormed Big Pirate Pete and his parrot, Igor!
"WHAR BE THE TREASURE? 'X' MARKS THIS SPOT!
WE'LL DIG UP THE LOOT AND STEAL ALL THAT YE'VE GOT!"
