The night pirates/ by Peter Harris
THE NIGHT PIRATES written by Peter Harris and illustrated by Deborah Allwright is very cute. It's an imaginative but simple story about a band of rough, tough little girl pirates and a nice little boy named Tom who joins their ranks. With their clever disguise in place, it's a night of high sea adventure as they set sail in search of treasure. There is no violence or scariness at all unless you count the threat of Captain Patch as he shouted his worst pirate curse, "If you don't give me back my treasure, I'll tell my mommy!" The illustrations are beautiful eye-catching and quirky!
