I inducted all the students into pirate school and we read about Maisie's adventures. The students enjoyed the illustrations immensely and we all practiced our pirate speech and "manners".

Captain Abdul reckons his school a success to have graduated such a crew, and Maisie herself is free to pursue her artistic interests. McNaughton's bold cartoons are well suited to the subject. His pirates convey just the right robust exaggeration; bold lines express exuberant movement and attitude.

Colin McNaughton was born on May 1, 1951 in Britain. He then went on to earn his MA in illustration at the Royal College of Art which is when he published his firat book. His picture books have comic -strip techniques that make them unique and Shh (Don't Tell Mister Wolf!) all of which feature Preston Pig and his clever escapes from Mr Wolf.

A young boy who prefers poetry to fighting is sent by his father to pirate school to toughen him up under the tuition of the zany scoundrel Captain Abdul. Arrrrgh! Life on the bounding main! Kids are crazy about pirate stories, and this delightful book is well-loved by my granddaughters. The pirates are so delightfully drawn, and the captions so witty, that adults will enjoy reading it as much as the kids enjoy hearing it. Practice your pirate voice before you start!

Written in diary form, this is the story of reluctant pirate pupil Pickles, packed off to pirate school.

Written in diary form, this is the story of reluctant pirate pupil Pickles, packed off to pirate school. At Captain Abdul's awful academy she is taught such essential pirate topics as treasure, how to make cannon balls and the correct way to say, "Ooh arrgh!" Then she discovers a staffroom plot to kidnap the pupils and hold them to ransom! So she leads a mutiny, following which she and her fellow pupils set sail in the Golden Behind and have a great life robbing other pirates.

At Captain Abdul's Pirate School, kids learn to toughen up quick and are praised for cheating, swearing, and generally .

At Captain Abdul's Pirate School, kids learn to toughen up quick and are praised for cheating, swearing, and generally getting into trouble. Cleaning your room or brushing your teeth can earn you a scolding or even a flogging. Eventually, there is a mutiny on board and pupils sail away to their own island. With more than 60 books under his belt, author/illustrator Colin McNaughton obviously enjoys great popularity with the kindergarten set, although his latest is not about to endear him to parents any time soon. Pickles is sent away to pirate school because Dad finds thinks he's a big softie, always writing poems and painting pictures.

AWESOME story and even more awesome illustrations!

I first read this book to my boy/girl twins when they were 2 years old. They loved it so much that today, ten years later, they can still recite it word for word. The drawings are detailed and delightful, but also simple enough for little ones to understand the goings-on at Capt. Abdul's school. The twist at the end -- the protagonist is a girl, not a boy, pirate -- is just perfect.

This book took the reader through a journey of what it would be like to be at pirate school, which is exactly what I was hoping it would do. It also made the protagonist into a hero and helped identify that "pirate school" has many bad manners that are not all acceptable, even to kids.

Arrrrgh! Life on the bounding main! Kids are crazy about pirate stories, and this delightful book is well-loved by my granddaughters.

We love the diary format -- a new student (who turns out at the end to be a girl named Maisie) is sent to pirate school to toughen her up because she likes to write poetry and paint pictures. A good-natured mutiny occurs and Maisie finds a way to be a pirate and still pursue her artistic interests.

The pirate-as-adorable-imp theme is a familiar one, however unfounded in reality. What is it about pirates that we like so much? Maybe it's the fact that they make their own rules. In "Pirate School" the students wind up rejecting much of the rough pirate behavior, turning away from meanness while keeping the freedom and adventure. That's what we'd hope for -- the antithesis of "Lord of the Flies"!

Fun story, great drawings -- highly recommended by me and my granddaughters.

I used this book as my centerpiece to a school unit on Pirates (a "just for fun" unit). I inducted all the students into pirate school and we read about Maisie's adventures.
The students enjoyed the illustrations immensely and we all practiced our pirate speech and "manners". Aargh! The best part is the ending (Spoiler alert!): Maisie is a girl -- this drew in my female students who thought we were heading into "boy time". We then re-read the book, knowing now that it was about a girl, and had a meaningful discussion about gender roles.
Following Captain Abdul, we then used a variety of books (including DK's Pirate book) to learn about real pirates...it made for several fun afternoons.

We have 2 boys and they both loved this growing up. They're teens now and I'm glad this book is still in print. It's a great adventure, with a little bit of pirate history added. One of our favorite pirate books (and we had many of the genre) oooh arghhh, a great book!

I began reading this book with my 6 year old daughter and was so disappointed with the wording on the first page that we stopped and switched to another book. The author had the main character, Pickles, use the word "stinking" four times on the first page as well as "steaming cow dung". We stopped reading at the substitute for a curse word. I later finished the book alone. The rest of the book is better and fits with the whole storyline better. Pickles is supposed to be a good, everyday kid who is won over to the pirate way of life (doing the opposite of what we teach our children to do... things such as brushing teeth or being considerate of others). If Pickles begins the book as a good kid, then the author missed the target by having Pickles have such an awful attitude, calling people names, and practically using cuss words. The rest of the book I enjoyed and may even go back and read to my daughter. I particularly liked the surprise ending where we find out that the pirate Pickles is a girl. If the first page had been more well written, then I probably would have given this book 5 stars... I dropped it two entire stars because if my daughter repeats the phrase "steaming cow dung" at school, she would probably be sent to the principal's office.
I am one of those parents who likes to expose my girls to books with strong female characters. The main character in this book is actually a girl, but you don't find that out until the end. The surprise is wonderful and my 5 and 7 year old girls loved it. I had to buy pirate outfits for the both of them. I recommend this book to parents who would like to take a break away from the typical Barbie-Princess-Bratz genre for young girls.
