Cover Art
Pirates Don't Take Baths - John Segal
"It'd be great to be a pirate and never have to take a bath...but what about the seasickness, Mom counters? Same with being a cowboy and sleeping on the ground, or being an astronaut and peeing in space. Hmmm. Maybe it's easier to take the bath than defeat Mom-logic." - Becky, Teen Librarian

Cover Art

Cover Art
Stretch - Doreen Cronin
