Summary

Summary

Who's the grubbiest pirate on the high seas? Why, it's Captain Beastlie, me hearties!

Captain Beastlie is a horror and embarrassment to his shipshape crew. He is the smelliest, dirtiest pirate ever to sail the high seas. So while he's eagerly counting down the days till his birthday, his crew is planning a special surprise. And when Captain Beastlie's birthday finally comes, his squeaky-clean crew steals his filthy old clothes, pops him in the bath, and gives him a brand-new pirate outfit to wear at his birthday feast. A rollicking tale that's perfect for kids who love pirates -- and those who hate bathtime, too!

Booklist Review

Captain Beastlie is the dirtiest, messiest, and most pungent pirate afloat. His crew runs a neat and tidy ship, and they seem to love him despite his filthy habits and lack of personal hygiene. The captain stomps around his ship, leaving disgusting traces of himself on the pristine decks and sails, loudly counting down the five days until his birthday. On the big day, he wakes up all alone in an empty cabin. Upon emerging, he is ambushed and treated to a lovely bubble-bath scrub-down, hair and beard restyling, and, best of all, a spanking-clean new suit. Captain Beastlie is delightfully gross and gruff, and the vibrant cartoon illustrations provide additional humor through revolting details and a visual subplot revealing the crew's stealthy, behind-the-scenes party preparations. Seaworthy interjections and appropriate shipboard insults spice up the deft and witty narrative, keeping readers and listeners engaged. Perfect for reading aloud, this is a fun and worthy addition to the perennially popular preschool pirate canon.--McBroom, Kathleen Copyright 2010 Booklist
