A rollicking and comical picture book celebrating pops everywhere.
Some pops scream ‘Huzzah!’ when they dive in dazzling pools. But my pop is a pirate . . . he yells ‘Aaarrrgghhh!’ and buries jewels.
All pops are different. But what if your pop was really different? What if your pop was a . . . pirate?
