How I Became a Pirate

How I Became a Pirate

Based upon the book “How I Became a Pirate” written by Melinda Long and illustrations by David Shannon
Book, Music and Lyrics by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman

When Captain Braid Beard and his crew invite Jeremy Jacob to join their voyage, it’s the swashbuckling time of his life! No vegetables or table manners, and you get to have sword fights whenever you want. But Jeremy soon misses things like getting tucked into bed, goodnight kisses and story time…
