Her pirate-captain father reminds her to be bold and saucy and selfish, but Augusta can’t help being shy, polite, and helpful; in short, a bad pirate. But when a terrible storm puts the crew in danger, Augusta is bold enough to be true to herself and show that a good pirate can be selfless, too. Barnacle Garrick is bold and saucy and selfish. And for a pirate captain, that’s good, very good. And his crew are all scurvy sea dogs—selfish down to the last fleabitten scuttle-butt. And that’s good too. But Augusta Garrick is shy, polite, and selfless. For a pirate, that’s bad, very bad. Despite her father’s horrible example, the sea pup can’t stop helping out. It just might take one terrible storm, a ripped sail, a missing peg leg and a panicked crew before Augusta can prove that being selfless is a bold and saucy move after all. And that’s good, very good indeed. A rollicking tale peppered with pirate talk, Kari-Lynn Winters’ Bad Pirate is a story about being true to yourself, even if it means you must go against the pack. Dean Griffiths’ artwork glows with rich colors, fine detail and spot-on doggie characters. A scurvy delight. For landlubbers, the endpaper design includes a glossary of pirate and sailing terms.

Phoebe—half Jamaican, half French-Canadian—hates her school nickname of "French Toast." So she is mortified when, out on a walk with her Jamaican grandmother, she hears a classmate shout it out at her. To make things worse, Nan-Ma, who is blind, wants an explanation of the name. How can Phoebe describe the color of her skin to someone who has never seen it? "Like tea, after you've added the milk," she says. And her father? "Like warm banana bread." And Nan-Ma herself? She is like maple syrup poured over...well... In French Toast, Kari-Lynn Winters uses descriptions of favorite foods from both of Phoebe's cultures to celebrate the varied skin tones of her family. François Thisdale's imaginative illustrations fill the landscape with whimsy and mouthwatering delight as Phoebe realizes her own resilience and takes ownership of her nickname proudly.

Augusta's pirate-captain father insists that pirates must be rotten, sneaky, and brainy. But Augusta prefers fanciness to foulness. Despite the crew’s opposition, she sets out to prove that a successful pirate can be fancy, sneaky, and brainy, too. In Bad Pirate, unlikely buccaneer Augusta Garrick that integrity pays off, even when it means running against the pack. In Good Pirate, the sea pup is still under pressure to fit in, this time by abandoning her love for fancy things. After all, says her father the captain, a good pirate must be rotten, sneaky, and brainy. But is there really any reason a pirate can’t be sneaky, brainy, and fancy? When the rest of the crew is captured by Captain Fishmonger’s mangy pirate cats, Augusta gets the chance to show just what a well-dressed, sweet-smelling, clever pup can do. With swashbuckling energy and satisfying pirate dialogue, Kari-Lynn Winters has written a sequel worthy of Bad Pirate’s popular and critical success. Dean Griffiths brings personality to every crewmember, telling stories within stories through his richly detailed illustrations. A treasure for any landlubber who knows you can’t judge a mind by its cover.

Kari-Lynn Winters and Lori Sherritt-Fleming team up again for another poetry collection for young readers with the emphasis on math concepts including measuring time, patterns, counting, symmetry, numbers, shapes, estimating and more! He was hungry for math, always ready to munch. Math for his breakfast, math for his lunch. He'd pig out on pie charts and bar graphs galore, binge on skip-counting, and still ask for more. Shapes — he discovered — were less filling fare. He'd taste test a rhombus, sparing room for a square. He'd devour the dollars atop his dessert, then slurp on the coins he'd slopped on his shirt. At night, in the dark, he'd gnaw on base ten, toss back some clocks, and crunch numbers again.
