That’s right! Talk Like a Pirate Day is totally a real international event and this year is the 10th anniversary. Be sure to check out the website for fun pirate games, and English-Pirate translator, and much more. And once you’ve gotten your pirate name (mine is Bess the Mean), maybe you should check out some of these awesome books that star and/or feature pirates:
Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer. The.Best.Pirate.Book.Ever. Seriously.
Beauty Queens by Libba Bray. Yup. There are pirates in this one.
Captain Hook: the Adventures of a Notorious Youth by James V. Hart
The Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S. King
Pirates! by Cecilia Rees
A Thousand Years of Pirates by William Gilkerson.
The Pirate Captain’s Daughter by Eve Bunting
Airborn by Kenneth Oppel. Who says pirates have to stay in the sea? This one has air pirate!
These should get you started. Do you have a favorite pirate book?
