Pirate Mom

Ahoy, there! Pete loves playing pirates, but his mom never wants to play along with him. Then Pete and his mom go to see a magic show. Pete's mom is hypnotized into thinking she's a pirate! Now she's chasing neighbors, wearing an eye-patch, and flying a pirate flag on top of the house. Author Deborah Underwood uses short paragraphs and simple sentences to tell this funny tale, with humor added by the comic-style illustrations by Stephen Gilpin. Readers won't need a map to discover the treasure trove of laughs inside this book.
