Pirates, Ahoy!

Many thanks to my hosts at the Children’s Literature Centre at Frostburg, Maryland for inviting me to present at their annual Pirates In The Park festival. I had a fantastic time! I read from Eve Bunting’s P Is For Pirate. The kids had me paint a parrot who is a pirate on a treasure chest in a pirate ship reading a treasure map. Whew! https://www.frostburg.edu/childrens-literature-centre/pirates.php

You can still buy an autographed copy of P Is For Pirate at Main Street Books. I signed copies of some other titles, too. https://www.downtownfrostburg.com/business/main-street-books/

My baby sister made me this pirate rig in one afternoon!

My clever audience came up with their own Pirate ABC! They told me the A, B & C pirate words to draw.

Dr Ornstein took all the great photos shown here. Thanks, Barbara!

Join me this Saturday

Henry & The Buccaneer Bunnies

If you’ll be around Pittsburgh Saturday, September 13, please stop by the old Salty Carrot shipwreck pavilion (the big blue slide) in Frick Park. I’ll be part of Alphabet Trail and Tales from 10:00 – 1:00, reading & painting and telling horrible pirate jokes.
