It starts as a tale of a young boy running away to sea on board a pirate ship and quickly becomes an instruction manual on being a pirate. The illustrations are really detailed and all up it is a very informative book. It covers everything from the parrot, to weapons and what to do with your treasure. A really nice touch though is it lists some famous pirates throughout history, it gives a little information about them and leaves plenty unsaid if you want to research more about them. This is a cross between  a picture book and a non-fiction one and it sits comfortably in that middle ground.

The sheer amount of text and detail makes it a book more appropriate for older picture book readers and some of the illustrations have so much detail in them you can look at them for a long time and still find new things to see.

Perfect for someone with a love of pirates.
