What's Pirate Boy About

Publisher Summary

After reading his favorite book about a pirate boy, Danny wonders what would happen if he sailed away on a pirate ship. Luckily, his mother reassures him that she would find him, even if she had to swim on a dolphin, battle sea monsters, and wield a bottle of pirate-shrinking magic spray to do it! Young readers will love this adventurous and ultimately reassuring tale of a mother’s love.

Who Illustrated Pirate Boy

Julie Fortenberry

I have an MFA from Hunter College. My abstract paintings have been in the Whitney Museum of American Art. But for the last decade I’ve been writing and painting for kids. I enjoy the honest responses I get from preschoolers and kindergarteners. Recently, I stumbled on a youtube of a kindergartener reading Lily’s Cat Mask. She read it with so much feeling. She even changed her voice to fit each character. That’s about as good as it gets.
