ABOUT HOW TO BE A PIRATE
A sparkling and inspirational picture book about a girl who wants to be a pirate, her tattooed grandpa, and their indelible bond.
When the neighborhood boys tell CeCe that she can't be a pirate, she goes straight to her Grandpa, who must know something about being a pirate. Why else would he have all those tattoos?
As Grandpa shares each tattoo with CeCe, they are transported to imaginative lands where they learn all the qualities a pirate should possess: A pirate must be BRAVE and QUICK, but also FUN and INDEPENDENT. And the most important thing is to believe in yourself, whether you’re a pirate or not.
This fanciful, heartwarming story from Isaac Fitzgerald, founding editor of BuzzFeed Books and host of BuzzFeed News Twitter morning show #AMtoDM, is brought to life by New York Times bestselling illustrator Brigette Barrager in a vibrant, joyful expression of what it means to be… all kinds of wonderful things, including a pirate.
