Fredbeard and Little Jim are terrible pirates. They can’t buckle their swashes. They’d rather walk the dog than force anyone to walk the plank. And they always get seasick. Lucky for them, a crate washes up on shore with some very un-piratey sugar and yarn, perfect for making jam and wool sweaters and for changing careers. This humorous turn-around tale

Overview

Fredbeard and Little Jim are terrible pirates. They can’t buckle their swashes. They’d rather walk the dog than force anyone to walk the plank. And they always get seasick. Lucky for them, a crate washes up on shore with some very un-piratey sugar and yarn, perfect for making jam and wool sweaters and for changing careers. This humorous turn-around tale about the most non-traditional pirates is accompanied by the brightly colored illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Fredbeard and Little Jim have flunked out of pirate school because, among many other problems, they can't "buckle swashes." With their dog Patch, they set up housekeeping on an island and keep failing at everything they try except collecting boxes of things that have washed up on the beach. Fredbeard finally has a good idea as he drinks tea and eats toast, and proceeds to make jam from squishy strawberries and shipwrecked sugar. Little Jim has an equally fine idea, and begins to knit sweaters from shipwrecked wool and needles. They head for the market where the neighbors buy everything and the two friends find success and their "big bag of gold." The story probably has a lesson in it about career choices for men but the writing is coy and uninspired. The brightly colored cartoon drawings are equally ordinary.-Susan Pine, New York Public Library Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
