A Book About Kindness. And Pirates.
The Appropriate Pirate is a book about two pirates. Appropriate Pirate is kind to everyone he meets. Inappropriate Pirate...is not! He's rude, selfish, and refuses to make friends with the other pirates. One day, Inappropriate Pirate faces a challenge that teaches him just how much we all need each other. Join these two pirates on their journey as they learn the value of kindness, friendship, and the importance of community.
The Appropriate Pirate was written and illustrated by Corrie Liotta, an illustrator based in Charlotte, NC. This is her first of what she hopes will become many illustrated books, written for children and their parents alike.
The Appropriate Pirate is one of those books you just get excited to read the moment you hear of it. I waited many months to read it as I followed the author’s progress in writing, illustrating, etc. And WOW. It was WELL WORTH the wait. It was such an easy fun read that
I ended up reading it to my kids 4 times in a row. The whole book is creative: the story line, the characters, the illustrations. I would love to see this become a series. I’m a fan and so are my kids (and husband)!
