Prince and Pirate

I know, I know. 

I’ve been on this adorable children’s book kick. But can you blame me? I’ve got two little preschoolers at home and these books are the cutest!

I mean, look at this!

Adult or not, I can’t not share about this!

Especially since the huge majority of books I read are kids books. (Thirty-five in April, actually. Yes, I keep track.)

So without further Ado, here’s some more details about Prince and Pirate: (and happy book birthday!)


When two little fish with big personalities have to share the same tank, there are rough seas ahead!

Prince loved being the monarch of his tiny kingdom and Pirate enjoyed having his own little sea to rule, but when the two are plopped into a tank together, each feels that the other is trespassing on his territory. Insults and cunning traps don’t drive either fish away, so Prince and Pirate scoot, bump, and shove pebbles down the middle of the tank to mark off their sides. But when a smaller fish arrives and seems frightened by his new surroundings, Prince and Pirate set aside their feud so they can all get along.



Charlotte Gunnufson has never, ever had any trouble sharing. Okay, maybe one time. But that was her big sister’s fault. And the other time, her little brother started it. Anyway, Charlotte is author of Halloween Hustle and lots of funny poems for Highlights and Cricket magazines. She lives in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Mike Lowery is the illustrator of The Gingerbread Man Loose on the Firetruck. His work appears in everything from greeting cards to children’s books and the Kid’s Awesome Activity Calendar. He is a professor of illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design Atlanta.
