Ahoy, Mateys! Today (September 19th) be International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Mheir has a Disney screensaver that, every 15 minutes, chimes out: "Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me!" We love pirates in our house. We've bought these books recently:
- Pirates! by Celia Rees (young adult)
- Pirate: A Thriller (Hawke) by Ted Bell (adult thriller)
- Airborn by Kenneth Oppel (young adult, includes pirates)
- Piratica: Being a Daring Tale of a SIngular Girl's Adventure Upon the High Seas by Tanith Lee (middle school).
- The Mammoth Book of Pirates: Over 25 True Tales of Devilry and Daring by the Most Infamous Pirates of All Time by Jon Lewis
Happy Pirate Day!
