It's not every day that a pirate -- and his talking penguin -- show up at the front door! But that's exactly what happens when Wilson's long-lost uncle comes to live with his family. Desperate Evil Wicked Bob and his sidekick, Captain Jack, are not ordinary houseguests. They're not ordinary anything. Uncle Pirate is having a spot of trouble adjusting to life on land. And Captain Jack wants to go to school to learn to read. Unfortunately, Very Elementary is as far from shipshape and Bristol fashion as a school could be. Until Uncle Pirate steps in, that is....

Set sail for a classroom adventure from mollymockery to mathematics in this story of a boy who has what every kid wants -- a pirate for an uncle.

Review: Uncle Pirate (Uncle Pirate #1)

User Review  - Cindy Kleback - Goodreads

Quirky tale of a boy whose long lost uncle is a pirate complete with a peg leg and a talking penguin. Yes, the story is far-fetched, but it is an enjoyable read. Recommended for boys who love a good pirate tale, but who doesn't love a good pirate tale? Read full review
