About the Author/Illustrator:
I am a huge fan of Brandon Dorman, and not just because he graduated
from the same university that I did (although I have to admit that it does make me a little biased). All you have to do is look at his
amazing illustrations to know why I love his work so much.
Pirates of the sea is a rhyming, swashbuckling adventure where we get to
follow a group of appropriately disgusting pirates on their quest to
find some buried treasure. The writing is upbeat and comical. The
illustrations boast of Brandon’s unique and energetic style. I just
loved this book, and so did my kids. Any pirate lover will enjoy this sea faring adventure.
