What happens when a pirate, hoping for a parrot, stumbles upon a bird of a duller plumage?

Pirate doesn’t know that Penguin is a penguin. But any bird can sit on a shoulder and squawk “shiver me timbers”…right?

Laugh along with Pirate and Penguin in this high seas tale of mistaken identity and find out whether they’ll find friendship before somebody walks the plank.

Review for Pirate & Penguin

I have a thing for pirates.

I have a thing for penguins.

Shiver me timbers! This idea to put them together is nothing short of genius. It was love at first sight with this remarkable cover and amazing illustrations. The book cracked me up as I started laughing on page one and matey, I am still laughing days later. Chock full of swagger and a treasure chest of bountiful pirate jargon, it will keep any child’s attention (me included). Ahoy! A great moral hooked me in the end. You don’t want me to ruin it for you, do you? Argh!

Favorite quote, “A pirate-y poopie head”

About the Author

Pirate and Penguin author

Mike Allegra sailed into uncharted writing waters to create an all-dialogue story with an unexpected pirate character: a little dotty, well-meaning, and unusually patient (anyone would snap if a penguin trashed their ship and spit out their cracker). He’s written a number of other books for children, including Sleepy Happy Capy Cuddles (Page Street Kids) and Scampers Thinks Like a Scientist (Sourcebooks). He also works as an editor and a creative writing teacher.

About the Illustrator

Pirate and Penguin illustrator

Jenn Harney had a blast creating the art for this story because who doesn’t love pirates and penguins? Together at last! She’s illustrated many other children’s books, including Hornswoggled! (Page Street Kids), and even authored a couple as well. She lives in Ohio with her family and their corgi named Steve.
