"Ahoy, landlubber Come with me, Board me ship upon the sea."  And so this hilarious pirate tale begins..... Pirate or not,  this is the ship to be on and get a taste of what a real pirate's life is like.  You get a free tour and to feast your eyes on the Skulls and Crossbones flag flying high against the blue sky. The perks of being a pirate are:  you don't need to mind your manners, you can use pirate lingo (gangway, blimey, yo-ho-ho),  and even design your own pirate outfit complete with a squawky parrot of your own choosing - every pirates lucky charm! A pirate's life of freedom include no teeth brushing, no baths or no rules to obey.  A pirate's life can be dangerous and you have to always be on guard for evil enemies that are lurking about the sea.  After one such chase the pirates escape safely and finally land ashore to dig for buried treasure.  Pirates know how to celebrate when they flip open the treasure chest and find valuable pieces of eight that are theirs for the taking.  They sing a shanty, whistle a happy tune and  dance a jig in their  pirate pants.  Pirates know how to celebrate and party hearty!  Yo ho ho...a pirate's life for me! Or is it?  Sue Fliess tells this story in perfect rhyme and will have girls, boys, and parents engaged in this  rollicking pirate's tale.  The illustrations are hilarious, cartoonish and very detailed. They are a perfect visual expression to the fun text.  This book is a lot of fun and I highly recommend it.
