Explanation of the Book:

Barnacle Garrick is bold and saucy and selfish. And for a pirate captain, that’s good, very good. And his crew are all scurvy sea dogs—selfish down to the last fleabitten scuttle-butt. And that’s good too. But Augusta Garrick is shy, polite, and selfless. For a pirate, that’s bad, very bad. Despite her father’s horrible example, the sea pup can’t stop helping out. It just might take one terrible storm, a ripped sail, a missing peg leg and a panicked crew before Augusta can prove that being selfless is a bold and saucy move after all. And that’s good, very good indeed. A rollicking tale peppered with pirate talk, Kari-Lynn Winters’ Bad Pirate is a story about being true to yourself, even if it means you must go against the pack. Dean Griffiths’ artwork glows with rich colours, fine detail and spot-on doggie characters. A scurvy delight. For landlubbers, the endpaper design includes a glossary of pirate and sailing terms.

The deeds and personalities of famous pirates have received significant attention in recent years: however, no detailed depiction of their vessels has ever been produced. This title redresses the imbalance, conducting a detailed exploration of the wide variety of pirate vessels that sailed the high seas during the 'golden age' of piracy (1690–1730), from gun-bristling warships to smaller craft such as sloops, brigantines and early schooners. It incorporates the latest archaeological evidence to produce a fascinating account of these vessels, detailing their origins, development and tactical engagement. Packed with contemporary illustrations and superbly detailed colour artwork, the ships of the 'golden age' are brought vividly to life.

Charles Johnson, and widely believed to be authored by Robinson Crusoe author Daniel Defoe, A General History of the Pyrates details the lives of Blackbeard, Black Bart, Anne Bonny, Edward Teach, Mary Read, Jolly Roger, Calico Jack, and many more.

Barrie.

In Bad Pirate, unlikely buccaneer Augusta Garrick that integrity pays off, even when it means running against the pack. In Good Pirate, the sea pup is still under pressure to fit in, this time by abandoning her love for fancy things.

With swashbuckling energy and satisfying pirate dialogue, Kari-Lynn Winters has written a sequel worthy of Bad Pirate’s popular and critical success. Dean Griffiths brings personality to every crewmember, telling stories within stories through his richly detailed illustrations.
