    The season of autumn will begin on September 22.

    After the earthquakes, floods, hurricanes and fires of late summer, let's hope this fall is less exciting. Here are several of the latest children's books about the fall season to enjoy.

    Tomorrow, September 19, is perhaps the most nonsensical holiday of the year -- Talk Like a Pirate Day! What better day to read one of these recent pirate books? The Pirate Jamboree, by Mark Teague, published by Orchard in 2016, age 3-6, 32 pp., BTSB# 874162, $20.51, good reviews by SLJ and Booklist.

    Pirates Blackbeard Johnson and his brothers, Eyepatch Sue, and others sail over to Peg Leg Jones' for a happily chaotic pirate jamboree--until the S.S.
