The Pink Pirate
author: Michelle Worthington
illustrator: Karen Mounsey-Smith
Georgia had spent her whole life at sea. As a baby, she would crawl around the deck with balloons tied to her nappy for when she fell overboard. More than anything else, Georgia wanted to be a pirate captain like her father. But because she was a girl, Ginger John made her wear a pink dress with buttons and bows and told her to stay below deck when the real pirate fun began. Will Georgia become a real pirate?
