And for a pirate captain, that's good, very good. And his crew are all scurvy sea dogs--selfish down to the last fleabitten scuttle-butt. And that's good too. But Augusta Garrick is shy, polite, and selfless. For a pirate, that's bad, very bad. Despite her father's horrible example, the sea pup can't stop helping out. It just might take one terrible storm, a ripped sail, a missing peg leg and a panicked crew before Augusta can prove that being selfless is a bold and saucy move after all.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Barnacle Garrick is bold and saucy and selfish. And for a pirate captain, that's good, very good. And his crew are all scurvy sea dogs--selfish down to the last fleabitten scuttle-butt. And that's good too. But Augusta Garrick is shy, polite, and selfless. For a pirate, that's bad, very bad. Despite her father's horrible example, the sea pup can't stop helping out. It just might take one terrible storm, a ripped sail, a missing peg leg and a panicked crew before Augusta can prove that being selfless is a bold and saucy move after all. And that's good, very good indeed. A rollicking tale peppered with pirate talk, Kari-Lynn Winters' Bad Pirate is a story about being true to yourself, even if it means you must go against the pack. Dean Griffiths' artwork glows with rich colours, fine detail and spot-on doggie characters. A scurvy delight. For landlubbers, the endpaper design includes a glossary of pirate and sailing terms.
