In Richard Scarry's Pie Rats Ahoy! there are pirates in Busytown Bay, but that doesn’t bother Uncle Willy. He sails off with his cherry pie, only to be overtaken by pie rats that steal his ship and his pie. Pie Rats, Ahoy! Luckily Uncle Willy knows a trick or two, and readers will see that it’s the pirates who had better watch out!
