Pirates of the Caribbean by Xavier Atencio - ADVISABLE

Atencio, Xavier Pirates of the Caribbean, illustrations by Mike Wall.  PICTURE BOOK.  Dsiney, 2017.  $18. 9781484727867

Wall’s new illustrations are a refreshing counterpoint to the classic song that no one really knows except for the Yo-Ho part of the chorus!  Now, whether you want your child to really learn the lyrics or not is up to you.  But there are no bad surprises here – it is exactly like going through the ride and hearing the narration and song there.  I found it a rollicking good time.  Pirates used to scare the beejeebers out of me as a child and I still love it!  The book includes the classic soundtrack to listen to as you read and sing the book.
