Meet LONG JOHN McRON, SHIP'S COOK ... and the most unusual babysitter you've ever seen.
Long John has a whole crew of wild pirates in tow, and—for one boy and his sister—he's about to transform a perfectly ordinary evening into a riotous adventure beneath a pirate moon. It's time to make some PIRATE STEW.
Marvelously silly and gloriously entertaining, this tale of pirates, flying ships, doughnut feasts and some rather magical stew is perfect for all pirates, both young and old.
With a deliciously rhyming text from master storyteller Neil Gaiman and spellbinding illustrations by the supremely talented Chris Riddell, this is the picture book of the year!
Neil Gaiman is the author of many highly acclaimed and award-winning books for children and adults, including the New York Times #1 bestselling and Newbery Medal–winning novel The Graveyard Book; the bestselling Coraline; Stardust; and the New York Times bestselling The Sleeper and the Spindle, illustrated by Chris Riddell. He is also the author of eleven picture books, including The Wolves in the Walls, illustrated by Dave McKean; Chu’s Day, illustrated by Adam Rex; and Cinnamon, illustrated by Divya Srinivasan. Originally from England, he now lives in the United States.
Chris Riddell is an acclaimed British artist and former UK Children’s Laureate.

They will be in conversation with Isaac Fitzgerald. He has been a firefighter, worked on a boat, and been given a sword by a king, thereby accomplishing three out of five of his childhood goals. After making a bunch of cool things for the internet, he now writes books and lives in Brooklyn, New York.
