How to be a pirate

by Isaac Fitzgerald and Brigette Barrager

CeCe dreams of being a pirate. When the neighbourhood boys tell her that she can't, she wonders where to begin. Luckily, she suspects her grandpa must know something about being a pirate-why else would he have all those tattoos? As he shares each tattoo, Grandpa and CeCe are transported from adventure to adventure, and CeCe discovers that there are all kinds of ways to be a pirate-Be BRAVE! Be QUICK! Be INDEPENDENT! And FUN!--and most of all, whether you're a pirate or not, the most important thing you can do is to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. This heart-warming and imaginative story is a vibrant, joyful expression of what it means to be all kinds of wonderful things . . . including a pirate.
