Overview

Uncle Pirate by Douglas Rees, Tony Auth

It's not every day that a pirate — and his talking penguin — show up at the front door! But that's exactly what happens when Wilson's long-lost uncle comes to live with his family. Desperate Evil Wicked Bob and his sidekick, Captain Jack, are not ordinary houseguests. They're not ordinary anything. Uncle Pirate is having a spot of trouble adjusting to life on land. And Captain Jack wants to go to school to learn to read. Unfortunately, Very Elementary is as far from shipshape and Bristol fashion as a school could be. Until Uncle Pirate steps in, that is....

Set sail for a classroom adventure from mollymockery to mathematics in this story of a boy who has what every kid wants — a pirate for an uncle.

Wilson's mother is making Bad News Pie. That's bad news. It is really pumpkin pie, but Wilson's mom only makes it when she has bad news. What could it be this time?

Wilson's mom hands his dad a letter from the Navy. They have found Wilson's uncle, an uncle he never knew he had, marooned on an island near Antarctica. He had only a fishing pole and a penguin with him when he was found. The Navy is sending them to Wilson's house (yes, the penguin, too!).

They barely finish the letter when there is a knock at the door. There stands Wilson's uncle--and he's a pirate!

The pirate, Desperate Evil Wicked Bob, and his talking penguin, Captain Jack, are now living with Wilson and his family. How does a pirate learn to live a normal life? Uncle Pirate attempts to hold a regular job, as a gardener and in a coffee shop, but nothing is as easy as it seems. And now, Captain Jack wants to go to school. A penguin in school? Very Elementary isn't even the nicest school in town. Things are out of control and even the principal hides under his desk from the bullies.

Soon, Uncle Pirate is at school, too, and things start to look up for Wilson. Can Uncle Pirate fit in at school and with Wilson's family? Things are certainly more interesting since he's come.

UNCLE PIRATE is a fun story for kids ages 7-10. It is silly and even the youngest readers will find their pirate "voice." Before long, the entire family will be walking through the house uttering, "argh" in a pirate voice.
