How I Became a Pirate, by Melinda Long
A few years ago my husband and I were in San Francisco for some business meetings and found ourselves in a little gift shop near Fisherman’s Warf looking for a gift for our 2 small children. We came across “How I Became a Pirate” by Melina Long. I hadn’t ever heard of Melina Long but I had heard of David Shannon, the illustrator. After reading the first 3 pages, I knew this was a book I just had to take home with me. The pictures are outstanding (would we expect less from David Shannon?), the terminology is imaginative (yet avoids cliché and distracting slang), and the story line is just what I imagine a 6 year old would be conjuring up while playing on the beach.
