Of course there's an adventure with a lost treasure map and rival pirates and the navy. But really, I just like watching Polly turn pirate and outsmart everyone. I also adore the way Polly is drawn, tiny and round-faced, the total opposite of the usual comic book heroine.
The author and artist, Mr. Ted Naifeh, is also responsible for the delightful Courtney Crumrin series, which those of you who have a fondness for stories about things that go bump in the night will also enjoy.
Don't forget to practice your piratical accent and swagger for Talk Like a Pirate Day on Sept 19th. Show up in costume at the Murphy-Wilmot Library and get a free bookmark! And our undying love.
