Many students look forward to school days when they have a substitute teacher, but what would it be like if their substitute teacher was a pirate?

Detailed illustrations and use of high-frequency words support emergent readers. This book can also be used to teach students how to retell the events of a story as well as to analyze characters in order to better understand the text.
