It's an all out pirate battle on the playground! At the sound of the bell, the red-haired Red dashes out of class with his imaginary gang of pirates in tow. Following behind is black-haired Molly, with her own ship full. Despite his desire to play by himself, Red's scenario is invaded. When he tries to order his pirates to fight off the invaders, they mutiny. Molly herself enjoyed playing with Red, and after he calms down, they make a promise to each other. The almost realistic drawings of the children stand out in sharp contrast to the beautiful pencil drawings of the pirates and ships that they interact with. As is appropriate, pirate words in a curly font are spread about. Extra words are also included on the end pages, with their meanings appended to further draw kids into their own pirate adventures.
