Roger the Jolly Pirate
by Brett Helquist

Roger the Jolly Pirate
written and illustrated by Brett Helquist

Real pirates are mean and scary, but not Roger. He tries to be a serious pirate but he's so jolly that his pirate mates always send him below deck whenever they're on a raid, viewing him as 'not pirate enough.'

But then one day during an attack on his ship, Roger's characteristically kind and jolly gestures -- an attempt to bake the crew a cake -- inadvertently saves the day!

This book--with its bouncy text and fantastic illustrations (full of crazy perspectives)--"begs to be read aloud." (School Library Journal)
