Jeremy Jacob, a boy who joins Captain Braid Beard and his crew in this witty look at the finer points of pirate life by the Caldecott Honor–winning illustrator David Shannon and the storyteller Melinda Long. Jeremy learns how to say “scurvy dog,” sing sea chanteys, and throw food, but he also learns that there are no books or good night kisses on board. A swashbuckling adventure with fantastically silly, richly textured illustrations that suit the story to a T.
