Blue Jay the Pirate and his motley crew take their ship the Jolly Robin out to sea in search of cargo ships they can plunder. Seeds and eggs are some of the birds’ favorite treasures – until one of the eggs hatches and a gigantic bird emerges! They must outsmart a band of crows, flee from murderous weasels, and survive a dangerous storm. Illustrator Scott Nash’s action-packed first novel is full of memorable characters and of course, beautiful illustrations. Ages 9-11.
