O, P, Q, Arrrrrr!

September 19th is Talk Like a Pirate Day! In my social circle, that's one of the most important days of the year. In honor of this scurvy celebration, here's a round up of PIRATE BOOKS for all you literate landlubbers.

To be a first-rate pirate, you need a first-rate education. Fortunately, there are many fine institutions, fully acreddited in the instruction of pirate arts and sciences. You can read all about them in Captain Abdul's Pirate School by Colin McNaughton and Pirate School by Cathy East Dubowski.

The seven seas are brimming with pirate vessels. But who would have supposed that so many of them are piloted by... animals? Yes, you can read about their daring canine/feline/bovine/equine exploits in the pages of Captain Wag the Pirate Dog by Michael Terry, The Pirate and the Penguin by Patricia Storms and Sheep on a Ship by Nancy Shaw.
