Despite her upbringing on a pirate ship, Victricia Malicia Calamity Barrett is not your typical pirate. She cannot stand life at sea and is no good at living the pirate life. Victricia is quite a clutz and causes one mishap after another aboard the Potbellied Pirate. She prefers to spend her time reading and dreaming about life on dry land. After one particularly big blunder aboard ship, Victricia's pirate family agrees to leave her ashore where she is finally able to settle into the life of her dreams.
This story is fun to read as it is driven by a tongue-twisting rhyme scheme. Recommended as a read aloud to mid-elementary aged students.
