It's a spring morning on the farm. Grandma is happy the grandkis are visiting—they've picked just the right day!—and Grandpa is fixing breakfast. Suddenly his grandson reports that the cows have got loose! He thinks Big Brown Bessie just stepped on a goose! "Good gracious," Grandpa says as he pours himself a glass of milk. When his granddaughter shouts the chickens are out, Grandpa cooks up some eggs. Pigs broke the gate" Grandpa fries bacon. Why is Grandpa so cool? Because he knows the kids are trying to play an April Fool's trick!
Bouncy verses combine with fun illustrations to make the perfect handbook for pirate wannabes.
Come along for a shiver-me-timbers sea voyage and find out all about pirates! Any young pretend pirate will want to know such things as how you get to be a pirate, how pirates capture a ship, and, of course, whether those rascally oceangoers take baths. The stars of this book are a crew of lovable fellows, jauntily painted in bright, splashy colors and brought to life in delightfully funny verse.
