In an uneven send-up of pirates manners, Catrows (Fun in the Sun) boisterous mixed-media illustrations spotlight a bumbling pirate crew demonstrating respectful and unacceptable behavior alike, though they tend to blur together. At times, the action in the images takes some work to decode, or doesnt quite match up with the verse; in one scene, the pirate captain sobs while building a model pirate ship (his parrot has apparently stolen his miniature flag) as three mateys look on (pirates never interrupt/ when another pirates talking). Demas and Roehrig, the mother-daughter team behind the recent Does a Fiddler Crab Fiddle?, establish a playful, singsong rhythm as they jump between bad behavior and good, but several rhymes require linguistic somersaults to come together (While pirates are in battle,/ to push ahead is fine./ But when its time to board the boat,/ pirates wait in line). Even so, Catrows caricatures will keep many readers giggling as these scallywags trymore or lessto mind their manners. Ages 35. Authors agent: Mitchell Waters, Curtis Brown. Illustrators agent: Brian Keliher, Keliher Literary Management. (Nov.)
