The Stinky Pirate And The Princess
By P. Kevin Morley Illustrations by Kevin Groat
Peeeeeeee-yooooooouuuuuuu! Once upon a time, there was a really, really, REALLY, REALLY, super-stinky pirate named Pierre. He smelled worse than rotten eggs and worse than really stinky cheese. Pierre sailed with other pirates who were sort-of stinky. But none was nearly as awful-smelling as Pierre. Poor, stinky Pirate Pierre.
The other pirates had to hold their noses whenever they were around Pierre. “Peeeeeyooooouu! You STINK, Pierre!” they would tell him. And once in a while, the smell got SO bad that pirates would jump overboard just to escape the stinky stinkiness of icky-smelling Pierre. Poor Pierre. But because Pierre was a good pirate who worked hard to steal treasures from other ships (which is what pirates do best) the captain of the ship allowed Pierre to sail on his ship. But Pierre had to stay in the crow’s nest, where he smelled the least.
