Jory John and Avery Monsen have assembled the perfect manual for all your looting and pillaging needs—each page of Pirate’s Log gets you one step closer to becoming a full-fledged, parrot-shouldering, ship-steering, YAR-talking pirate. There’s dry humour abounds here, so tie your irony bib tight and get ready to feast on some scrumptious sarcasm.

Choosing your ship’s name is an integral part of pirate training—The Tom Cruiseliner is one suggestion. Want to figure out your pirate name? Check out The Pirate Name Formula:


descriptive word + your name + something shiny = Saucy Sindy Metal-Bum


Make sure you discover the true essence of pirating by taking The Day-Without-A-Bath Challenge—remember, you’ve gotta reek to ransack! There’s also a handy booklight for all those times you’re reading below deck in the dark, and there’s an eye patch you can cut out and wear to your parents’ dismay.


At the back of the book is a collection of Very Important Pirate Lessons, like #22: Everybody likes cake. If you’re a fan of silly humour, or just like crafting treasure maps and forcing your victims to walk the plank, this is the book for you.

    I'm sad to see you leaving so soon, especially because we have only been friends for a little while.  I didn't know your birthday was coming up so quickly, or that you were going to be 18! I have lots of things to say about you (all good things), but it'll be hard to name them all. I just want you to know that it's not about how long you've been here, it's about the memories that last a lifetime. I hope you have a happy birthday and a great trip!

    " In the vast, deep forest of Hyrule… long have I served as the guardian spirit… I am known as the Deku Tree. The children of the forest, the Kokiri, live here with me. Each Kokiri has his or her own guardian fairy. However, there is one boy who does not have a fairy…. " *** In his tree-trunk home, the boy was tossing and turning on his little cot. The circular room was dark; it was nighttime. And, as it was nighttime again, his young mind was plunged into the same nightmare again.... Hooves, galloping in a rapid staccato, like a myriad of drums being pounded, raced across a dark path lit on either side by fire as tall as the boy. But they only reached the shoulders of the horse as dark as midnight, its master clothed in cloth and armor just as dark. But that wasn't what was scary... it was the aura of evil practically dripping off the man, with his fiery hair and dark, nearly-green skin.... And how real he felt. *** "...Navi... Navi, where art thou? Come hither...." Back in my clearing, a cyan ball of light entered my line of sight, gently bobbing a few feet off of the ground. A pair of barely visible clear wings were the only indicator that she was facing me. Compared to my massive size, she was almost a speck. " Oh, Navi the fairy... listen to my words, the words of the Deku Tree.... Dost thou sense it? The climate of evil descending upon this realm.... Malevolent forces even now are mustering to attack our land of Hyrule.... For so long, the Kokiri Forest, the source of life, has stood a barrier, deterring outsiders and maintaining the order of the world.... But, before this tremendous evil power, my power is as nothing.... It seems the time has come for the boy without a fairy to begin his journey... the youth whose destiny it is to lead Hyrule to the path of justice and truth.... Navi, go now! Find our young friend and guide him to me... I do not Have much time left. Fly, Navi, fly! The fate of the forest--nay, the world--depends upon thee. "
