pirateHow to be a Pirate by Isaac Fitzgerald, illus. Brigette Barrager. Pub. Bloomsbury, 2020.

CeCe wants to be a pirate with the boys in their tree hut but they tell her no “girls can’t be pirates”.

So ceCe and her dog got to someone who knows how to be a pirate – Granddad. He has a tattoo and has been to sea. he tells CeCe the secret of being a pirate and lets the bemused boys know what it means to be a pirate.

Good values, good humour, lovely story. Illustrations are superb. Loved the dog. Good for juniors, reading aloud and developing reading skills. Every page is used even the back and front covers, I love it when that happens.
