Fair warning: This book is sad. :-(

A fun picture book by Mem Fox which is about the emotional life of the pirate Boris von der Borsch. The text is repetitive and children will love learning to follow the pattern to see what comes next for the pirate crew.
Best read aloud and with gusto!

Beautiful illustrations tell the real story in this kids' book. It does have a sad ending - but it shows the humanity of all people, even tough pirates like Boris. A real tearjerker!
