Kids will love this quirky tale of a pirate named Bob and his life on the high-seas. Bob is a pirate with a long scar that stretches from the tip of his nose all the way up to his ear, and when his nose itches it means that the pirates will be looting lots of treasure. Bob has a best friend, Yellow Jack, but being a pirate and having a best friend is very difficult because pirates don't trust anybody. Join Bob and his mates on a high-seas adventure, and learn what Bob wants more than treasure.
Yo Ho! Bob is a pirate. Bob's friend, Yellow Jack, is also a pirate. In spare, compelling prose, Kathryn Lasky crafts a story of their unusual friendship; their hopes, dreams, and fears; and their search for happiness in the cutthroat world of pirates. David Clark's quirky illustrations capture the mood of the story and life on the high seas.
Kathryn Lasky is the acclaimed author of dozens of books for young readers, including TUMBLE BUNNIES (Candlewick), HATCHLING (Scholastic), and SUGARING TIME (Macmillan), a Newbery Honor Book. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
