Pirates may fight and plunder booty. But when they do so, they are polite!

"Pirates are unruly and pirates love to fight, but pirates still say ‘please’ and ‘thanks’ ‘cause pirates are polite."

Are Pirates Polite? shows pirates’ rowdy activities and teaches manners lessons. These pirates remember to say "please" and "thank you." If pirates can be polite, surely young readers can, too!

Fun, rhyming text by Corinne Demas and Artemis Roehrig pairs pirates’ questionable activities with their lead-by-example lessons in manners. David Catrow’s humourous, zany illustrations depict the swashbuckling nature of the pirates. Follow along as pirates have fun on a pirate ship, divide up their treasure, and teach manners. Aargh!
