Neil Gaiman and Chris Riddell will be in conversation with Isaac Fitzgerald. Copies of his book, How to Be a Pirate, are available for purchase below.

Long John has a whole crew of wild pirates in tow, and—for one boy and his sister—he's about to transform a perfectly ordinary evening into a riotous adventure beneath a pirate moon. It's time to make some PIRATE STEW.

Marvelously silly and gloriously entertaining, this tale of pirates, flying ships, doughnut feasts and some rather magical stew is perfect for all pirates, both young and old.

With a deliciously rhyming text from master storyteller Neil Gaiman and spellbinding illustrations by the supremely talented Chris Riddell, this is the picture book of the year!

Pirate Stew! Pirate Stew!

Pirate Stew for me and you!

Pirate Stew, Pirate Stew

Eat it and you won’t be blue

You can be a pirate too!
