Booklist - 11/15/2016 As far as picture books about manners go, Judy Sierra and Tim Bowers’ prim Suppose You Meet a Dinosaur (2012) is all very nice, but for a like set of behavioral correctives that will catch the attention of more boisterous young audiences, Catrow’s wild pirate rumpuses here do rousing service. Following a vicious melee, for instance, one scruffy buccaneer gallantly hands another a lost tooth: “Pirates are unruly / and pirates love to fight, / but pirates still say ‘please’ and ‘thanks’ / ’cause pirates are polite.” A round dozen suggestions ranging from “Use your inside voice” to “Wait in line” and “Eat with your mouth shut” (all summarized in a “Pirate Manners” list at the end) are similarly explicated in ragged verse and acted out among a crew of comically scurvy swabs. The answer to the titular question here is a rousing yes; when it comes to good manners, it seems, everyone should be a pirate. - Copyright 2016 Booklist.
