My initials just happen to be ARG, so is it any wonder that I love International Talk Like a Pirate Day?
I also happen to be a huge fangirl for author A. S. King. Just come to Children’s Book World when she’s there and see me go all agog.
So, today, two of my favorite things come together. A. S. King’s first book is The Dust of 100 Dogs, about a modern teenager who used to be a pirate. As a pirate, she was killed and cursed with the dust of 100 dogs, meaning she had to live out the lives of 100 dogs before she could be human again. Well, she’s human now and remembers where her treasure is. So all she needs is a way to get to Jamaica.
This has to be the absolute BEST book trailer I have come across, ever.
