Polly Parrot Picks a Pirate

Publisher: Macmillan

Polly the parrot is tired of sharing a tree with a bunch of cheeky chimps. She decides to find a pet pirate and sail away to sea.

But which pirate should she choose?

Bartholomew Blood can't read a treasure map and Phineas Mudd is clumsy, while Crazy Kid Cutlass is frightened of spiders and Two-Tooth Trelawney picks his nose!

Redbeard and Pegleg are the two best pirates, but they are busy fighting each other. They are so well-matched that neither will win outright.

Does Polly Parrot know something that could persuade them to stop fighting and join forces?

With its humorous, energetic pictures and a bouncing rhyme, this book will be fun to use in the infant classroom.
