Description


Princess Bea isn t like other princesses she prefers pirate ships above tea parties, the salty sea over silly dolls. But what's a landlocked princess to do?

Ahoy, Captain Jack to the rescue When the captain offers Bea a place aboard his ship, it's a dream come true until she's put to work swabbing the decks and making dinner for the crew. Can a princess like Bea put her royal gifts to work and make the pirates see that she's seaworthy after all or will they make her walk the plank?

Praise For…


“The deft, engaging verse interspersed with pirate lingo is complemented neatly by McElmurry’s precise and detailed illustrations .... A winning combination of smart and silly, this yarn will make a welcome addition to princess and pirate storytimes, as well as a good choice for one-on-one sharing.”
-Kirkus Reviews

Praise for HAMPIRE!: “Building suspense and a sense of nocturnal dread, Bardhan-Quallen’s (The Hog Prince) rhymes are filled with puns (’”We’re sitting ducks,” the duck announced’), and the antics of the frantic duck and the animals he rouses should have readers laughing.”
-Publishers Weekly

Praise for HAMPIRE!: “Kids will feast on this deliciously scary tale over and over. ”
-Kirkus Reviews

Praise for HAMPIRE!: “Fine’s paintings exaggerate the animals’ terror to comic effect (funniest is the pony cowering in the corner), and his canted angles give this just the right absurdist tone.”
