Edward and the Pirates
by David McPhail


Little Edward loves reading, and one day he finds a pirate book at the library and brings it home. That night, the pirates appear in his bedroom, demanding he give them the book, but he refuses, suggesting instead that he read it aloud to the motley crew. The storyline is cute and engaging, but it's the moody acrylic on canvas illustrations that really dazzle!

"Edward and the Pirates will make a great read-aloud as it encourages children to read and discover the fun and adventure in books." (School Library Journal)
