Yo-ho! Ahoy all young pirates. Join the scurvy crew of mice aboard the S. S. Catnip and look for treasure. Learn how to talk like a pirate. See how pirates spend their days. The only cat allowed here is the figurehead on the bow, and he is bedecked with bandana and eye patch. But what happens when the mice discover a stowaway on board their ship? And not just any stowaway, but a C-A-T!

Written for the youngest pirates-in-training, Inside Jolly Rogerís Pirate Ship is a delight to explore. Constructed from pressed cardboard, the book is shaped like a ship and has gunports, portholes, and hatchways cut out so readers can peer through to see whatís inside or out. Even the Jolly Roger has peepholes. The limited text rhymes and there are dialogue boxes with piratical words and phrases throughout. The entire book is filled with colorful illustrations that depict the interior of the ship, with all her nooks and crannies, and treasure abounds! A purrfect introduction to pirates for preschoolers!
