Pirate Nell's Tale to Tell

Nell is finally a pirate! And she has her trusty Pirate's Almanac to help her sail the seas, even if Captain Gnash doesn't like books on his ship. But when the journey gets rough and the captain is in trouble, it's Nell and all her pirate knowledge that saves the day and leads them to the greatest buried treasure of all...

From the author/illustrator team behind The Snatchabook comes a book-filled adventure on the high seas! Cheerful art and rollicking text combine in this story about a bookish girl who proves that literacy sometimes offers unexpected advantages, and that the best captains know when to reconsider their previous stance and listen to new crewmates' ideas. For pirate fans and book lovers, this is the perfect tale!

"Nell finds a treasure map only to have it snatched by [Captain] Gnash. Ignoring Nell’s good advice, he soon finds himself in need of her rescue, and when the treasure is at last discovered, is it any wonder that it’s 20 treasure chests full of books? Gnash sees the error of his ways, and Nell not only teaches the crew to read, but converts the boat into a floating library.... A pox on the haters! Secure the mainsail and set a course for a howling good adventure." — Kirkus Reviews
