Are Pirates Polite? Fun, rhyming text by Corinne Demas and Artemis Roehrig pairs pirates’ questionable activities with their lead-by-example lessons in manners, while David Catrow’s humorous, zany illustrations depict the swashbuckling nature of the pirates.
Follow along as pirates have fun on a pirate ship, divide up their treasure, and teach manners. These pirates remember to say "please" and "thank you." If pirates can be polite, surely young readers can, too! Aargh!
