WHY CAN'T I BE A PIRATE?
Danny always wanted to be a pirate. So one day he rode his bike to the harbour, marched right up to the pirate captain of the first pirate ship he saw and said, “I’d like to be a pirate. Can I be a pirate on your pirate ship?”
But this pirate has a terrible secret and it's up to Danny to help him! Prepare for the unexpected when a little boy and a fierce pirate set sail for adventure in this silly story.
