Picture Book Puzzler: Pirates!

Ahoy, mateys! It's International Talk Like a Pirate Day (really, I didn't make it up...) and there certainly is no lack of picture books about pirates! I've put together a few favorites for you today. So put your guesses in the comments below...or walk the plank. I've made it multiple choice this week to make it a wee bit easier. Arrr! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Need a hint? Here are the multiple choice options, but beware! There are some titles listed that aren't pictured, just to throw you off! How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long, illustrated by David Shannon Edward and the Pirates by David McPhail The Pirate of Kindergarten by George Ella Lyon, illustrated by Lynne Avril Meanwhile by Jules Feiffer Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, illustrated by N.C. Wyeth Pirate Girl by Cornelia Funke, illustrated by Kerstin Meyer Sea Queens: Women Pirates Around the World by Jane Yolen, illustrated by Christine Joy Pratt Tough Boris by Mem Fox, illustrated by Kathryn Brown Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie, illustrated by Michael Hague The Ballad of the Pirate Queens by Jane Yolen, illustrated by David Shannon Bubble Bath Pirates! by Jarrett J. Krosoczka Looking for more pirate fun? Check out this funny video of different children's book authors trying on their best pirate accents while reciting a piratical alphabet. Hysterical! Thanks to Fuse #8 for the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0JOsW0rUMQ&feature=related
