In How I Became a Pirate, Jeremy Jacob joins Captain Braid Beard and his crew, where Jeremy learns how to say "scurvy dog," sing sea chanteys, and throw food...but he also learns that there are no books or good night kisses on board. A swashbuckling adventure with fantastically silly, richly textured illustrations that suit the story to a T. In the companion book, Pirates Don't Change Diapers, the pirate crew turns up at Jeremy's house and accidentally wakes his baby sister, and the wee scallywag howls louder than a storm on the high seas. Sure, there's buried treasure to be found, but nobody's digging up anything until Bonney Anne quits her caterwauling. So Braid Beard and his swashbuckling pirates become...babysitters.
