No Pirates Allowed! Said Library Lou, by Rhonda Gowler Greene and Brian Ajhar

library-louWhat could be better to read aloud than a book about pirates and librarians? The answer is nothing! It’s great for reading aloud, and the various sizes of print make it clear to young pirates whether it’s time to whisper, talk in a normal voice, or shout.

“At Seabreezy Library, things were just right. Book lovers were cozy.” Until Big Pete and his parrot Igor stormed in. Big Pete is convinced there is treasure to be found at the library as his treasure map showed a big red X right where the library stands. After all, X marks the spot right?

Pirate Pete was loud, and worst of all he was SMELLY!!! Library Lou would have none of it and told Big Pete to be quiet. She’d help him find the treasure, but first – he had to go home and take a bath. Big Pete came back the next day and thus began his adventure in the library with Library Lou.

Indeed there is treasure to be found at this library, but is it the treasure that Big Pete is looking for? This book is a librarian’s dream! However, I think kids of all ages would totally get into it, maybe even acting out the book as an activity at home.
