It’s Day 4 of the My Little Bookshelf game. Today’s prompt is ‘A favourite cover’. It took some searching before I re-discovered Piratelology. To be honest, this wasn’t a book I would have chosen for this challenge as I’m not sure if would count as a picture book, even though there are a lot of pictures in it…
This is a book I bought for Mr N when he was going through his pirate phase. I had kept my eye out for it for months as it was quite expensive and I wanted a cheaper price…
The cover is awesome (I know the pic isn’t that great). It looks like an old fashioned notebook with a leather look and gilt decorations. The compass in the middle is a real compass, or at least looks like one, with the needle moving around.
The whole book is wonderful, full of facts about pirates with bits that fold out, pull out, tie up, and more. Since pulling this book out of the bookshelf to include in this post, the boys have rediscovered it, reading it from cover to cover and taking time to open and experience everything this book has to offer.
If your kids are pirate crazy, this is a must have book for your collection.
