This fun book is written as an elementary child’s first novel. It’s filled with fun illustrations that spark the imagination. The story line centers around a pirate who comes to visit a girl and her brother, insisting they feed him porridge. He is accompanied by a pig who the pirate insists is a parrot. The kids’ house suddenly becomes a pirate ship and they learn how to sail it into several adventures featuring such excellent things as cabbage and treasure. We rated this enjoyable first book four hearts.
