A hilarious rhyming read-aloud tale of pirate babysitters and the mayhem they bring, by Newbery-winning master storyteller Neil Gaiman. Meet Long John McRon, Ship's Cook... and the most unusual babysitter you've ever seen. 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.
