The Anti-Pirate Potato Cannon

David Seidman, Jeff Hemmel



Spark a passion for sailng and the outdoors in your child

From the Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards bronze medal winner!

The two most beautiful words in the English language are “summer afternoon,” and this book is dedicated to the proposition that there is no better place to while away a summer afternoon than on, in, or beside the water. When a lakeshore or seashore is yours to explore, you will never run out of things to do, and we’ll show you how to . . .
  • Row a boat or roll a kayak
  • Build a raft, a cardboard boat, a rope ladder, or a waterfront swing
  • Catch plankton, fish, or crabs
  • Skip a stone or win a sailboat race
  • Tie a knot or heave a line
  • Chart a secret cove or ski on your bare feet
  • Go body surfing or have a clambake
  • And yes, make a potato-shooting cannon to fend off marauding pirates

So what are ye waitin’ for, swabbie? Look lively! The sun is sparkling on the waves, and the compass points to adventure. . . .
