Melinda Long's How I Became a Pirate is a New York Times best-seller. Jeremy Jacob was sitting on the beach one fine day with his parents when he saw a pirate ship heading their way. He tried to warn his family, but it was already much too late. When the ship landed, the pirates welcomed Jeremy aboard. Jeremy thought that being a pirate would be fun, but it wasn't nearly as nice as he thought it would be. Late one night at sea, a gigantic storm struck, and the pirate ship was wrecked. With nowhere else to go, Jeremy and the pirates go back to his house!

"What could be more fabulous for a young adventurer than to see a pirate ship appearing over the horizon? When this happens to Jeremy Jacobs, his parents are oblivious as their son sets sail with the pirate crew to help bury treasure. Jeremy is a quick study to the ways of pirates and even shares a few soccer tips with the crew, but he is more than dismayed with the ship's bedtime routine. Heller is a fine marauder. His understatement and deliberate pacing belie the raucous action and add to the humor. He relishes the "aargs" and "me hardies" of Captain Brave Beard. He shares Jeremy's indignation that there is no shipboard library and his delight in knowing where the treasure is. All this and Jeremy is back in time for soccer practice! A.R.
