|With my hardy buccaneer, Sophia|
Again hosted by the marvellous Little Bookroom in Carlton North, we had a hearty afternoon of piratical fun.
|Gestures of piracy: the YES|
and the NO
I asked fiendishly hard questions about pirates, like 'Did they fly helicopters?' and 'Did pirate flags have skulls and bananas?' (Nikos played sceptic and answered '...that we know of...' and 'perhaps'.)
The quiz also involved me dancing around like a drunk monkey with its limbs tied together.
Then it was time for a reading, and all of the kids joined in to yell 'pirate' as I said it.
|Listening for the cry, 'PIRATE!'|
|Deathstroke and his curls|
There was also some excellent dress-up, including Tucker who rocked some impressive pirate haute couture.
As always, Leesa from The Little Bookroom was entertaining, leading a rousing pirate singalong and thankyou.
There were also chocolate bunny pirates, which were handed out with a generosity perhaps missing in your average sea dog.
I closed the day by signing a stack of books, and then changing out of my cerise outfit of doom.
