Pirate crew.

Pirate Crew

by Alan Bagnall

illustrations by Philip Webb

Journal41

Pipiana and her brother pretend to be pirates when their uncle takes them out fishing. But when the boat breaks down, they have to quickly become mechanics. The theme of water safety underlies this otherwise light-hearted text. The humour at the end could elude some students if they can’t follow the shift from pirate story to mechanic story and back again.
