My Dad Thinks He's a Pirate

By Katrina Germein
Illustrated by Tom Jellett

You'll be hooked in this addition to the "My Dad..." series, where Dad sails the seven seas with more jokes to make you laugh - arrr arrr arrr!

Captain Dad and his crew are having a day at the beach, and of course Dad is bringing his treasure trove of jokes. Whether it’s a ship he bought on sail or an earring that costs one buccaneer, a day with Dad is shore to be hilarious! At least he seems to think so.

  • A perfect Father's Day gift for dads, and great inspiration for Talk Like a Pirate Day!
