Story Time: Isaac Fitzgerald presents How to Be a Pirate
Isaac Fitzgerald, writer and founding editor of BuzzFeed Books (and tattoo aficionado), presents his debut picture book, a sparkling and inspirational story about a girl who wants to be a pirate, her tattooed grandpa, and their indelible bond. When the neighborhood boys tell CeCe that she can't be a pirate, she goes straight to her Grandpa, who must know something about being a pirate. Why else would he have all those tattoos? As Grandpa shares each tattoo with CeCe, they are transported to imaginative lands where they learn all the qualities a pirate should possess. Fitzgerald’s fanciful, heartwarming story is brought to life by New York Times bestselling illustrator Brigette Barrager in a vibrant, joyful expression of what it means to be all kinds of wonderful things, including a pirate. Join Isaac for a special live online story time presentation, where kids can ask questions via Chat!
BONUS: Click here for some How to Be a Pirate coloring sheets -- you can print them out for a fun story time activity! (A note from illustrator Brigette Barrager: "They are a funky shape, so I recommend printing them out in pieces and taping them together so that they're the size of the book, 10x10! Makes for a nice long coloring session too.")
A recording of this event will be posted on this page following the event.
