Pirate's Perfect Pet

By Beth Ferry
Illustrated by Matt Myers

Ahoy! Pirates, pets, and puns run amok as a sea captain takes off on a mad search for the perfect animal sidekick.

Big, brave Captain Crave can check off most items on the Perfect Pirate checklist. He has a pirate ship, an eye patch, courage and daring, and more. Only one thing is missing: Captain Crave doesn’t have a pet. Arrr! Shuck me an oyster and set sail for land! The captain and his crew race and chase critters of every size and shape, from the beach to a farm to the zoo to a pet shop, causing a commotion wherever they go. But can the search party really stumble upon the most perfectly perfect pet for Captain Crave?

  • The perfect storybook for Talk-Like-a-Pirate Day and all fans of pirate tales!
  • The rhyme and word play throughout make this a sure-fire hit for reading aloud, story time sharing and laughing aloud!
