Aaaarrrrrgh. Pirates.

I don't know about your kid, but mine loves pirates!  From Captain Jack Sparrow to Jake!  So, when I heard that Captain Festus McBoyle would be porting in Dunedin and telling pirate tales for FREE at the Dunedin Public Library I knew we had to go! 

Bodie dressed up in his favourite pirate gear and arrived at the library just before it opened and waited eagerly with all the other young pirates.  The doors unlocked and it was miniature running arrrgh's through the library into the story pit where there were the best props ever to transform the pit into a pirate ship!

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!
