Pirates Go to School

Corinne Demas, illus. by John Manders. Scholastic/Orchard, $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-545-20629-7
When pirates go to school, they bring their parrots and hang their swords on the coat rack, and if you sit next to one, "better hold your nose because/ they smell of rotting fish." These elementary-age swashbucklers, like their more conventional peers, can be unruly, enthusiastic, and obedient—sure, they get in trouble for swearing and threaten mutiny, but they also happily participate in arts and crafts and clean up after their messes. Demas offers some fun phrases throughout, while Manders creates a cast of amiable ruffians that most kids would be happy to spend the day with. Ages 3–8. (July)
