Victricia Malicia Book-Loving Buccaneer by Carrie Clickard, illustrated by Mark Meyers
Perplexed by Victricia's love of dry land and strange addiction to books, her pirate family tolerates one maritime mishap after another-- until the fateful day when her slippery new swabbing soap sends half the crew overboard! Will the buccaneers ground this nautical nuisance or will Victricia find a way to save the day?" (inside book jacket)
This book is absolutely delightful! I enjoyed how Mark Meyers illustrations brought Carrie Clickards rhyming words to life and I was able to watch how Victricia Malicia grew up being different from her family.
This book is a great addition to a pirate story time, especially since most of the really good pirate books are about boys- little girls may love this one.
The authors have also included a website where you can find pirate activities, file folder games, scripts and much more. Go to Victricia Malicia for more information and pirate fun.
