Maggie and the Pirate
One day Maggie’s pet cricket is stolen, cage and all! The only clue is a note: THE PIRATE WAS HERE. So Maggie and her friends set out to find the pirate’s hideout. On their way, they make a surprising discovery—and a new friend. Keats’s brilliant use of color and gesture creates a landscape where anything can happen and feelings run deep.
Out of Print – worth pursuing if you want a beautiful book about a spunky girl or the loss of a pet.
