Posted on August 12th, 2016 by pajamapress

Bad Pirate by Kari-Lynn Winters and Dean GriffithsBad Pirate features lovely color drawings by Dean Griffiths as it tells of Barnacle Garrick, a bold pirate captain who has a shy daughter who likes being helpful. Augusta doesn’t fit in with the crew and her helpful ways are a problem, until the crew gets in trouble. Dog characters who form the crew and the dilemma of one who doesn’t fit in makes for a lively discourse on the possibilities of courage and difference in a pirate’s set ways.
