They find a baby girl whom they happily adopt and call Violet:"Vile" for short. Soon the pirates are busy caring for the little girl and teaching her lots of piratical ways. Great times are had as the pirates and Violet happily sail the seven seas in their trusty ship, the Sleek Sally. The wonderful adventures that they share make for hilarious reading.
Ideal for first readers, this fast-paced, action-packed, and belly-laugh-aloud book will warm the cockles of landlubbers' hearts everywhere.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Violet and the Mean and Rotten Pirates "Violet and the Mean and Rotten Pirates" is a good book. It was written by Richard Hamilton. It is about a group of pirates that find a baby on a deserted ship. The pirates raise Violet as a pirate and treat her as a queen. She does not know anything about land and does not know how to read. It is a real interesting book! I would suggest reading this book. It is a real good book for younger readers because the pages are not that long and it has a few pictures to look at. It makes you want to turn the page because you want to know what will happen to Violet.
