All the kids and parents were waiting when the music started and this real live (actually kind of scary looking) pirate arrived! All the kids looked a bit apprehensive then he turned around and burped, which made the pit roar with laughter. The pirate told tales and sang songs with his mates Sir William Crust and Ida Crumpet. And one of the best things was that the 'treasure' they got was a huge bag of fruit! Seriously, 3 mandarins, 2 bananas, 3 apples, 1 pear and a pureed fruit drink - score!
I don't know how often the library does stuff like this, but I will definitely start checking out FREE events at the Dunedin Public Library!
