This is Red Ribbon Week at Allen, and many pirates can be seen roaming the halls of our great school.  We "Aarrggh" all about making wise decisions that keep us healthy.  Oscar is showing us one of the many books we have in the library about pirates.  Pirate Pete's Talk Like a Pirate will surely be a favorite of many pirate fans.

Following the success of Pirate Pete and Pirate Pete's Giant Adventure comes a new book by the celebrated brother-and-sister team of Doug and Kim Kennedy. In this new adventure, Pete has a wonderful new ship, but no crew. But not just any crew will do. As Pete explains:

"Ye gots to be stubborn and mighty cranky,
Ye gots to be dirty and awfully stanky!
Ye gots to load a cannon and know how to fire it,
But most of all, ye gots to talk
like a pirate!"

One by one Pete interviews his potential crew, and one by one they get the boot! Whoever will he find to help him sail the high seas? A hilarious and fun-to-read-aloud book that will have every child talking like a pirate. (
