About the Story

Some pops scream ‘Huzzah!’ when they dive in dazzling pools.
But my pop is a pirate … he yells ‘Aaarrrgghhh!’ and buries jewels.

All pops are different. But what if your pop was really different?
What if your pop was a … pirate?

My Pop is a Pirate is a rollicking and comical story celebrating pops and grandfathers everywhere!

Damon Young's humorous rhyming text is playful and perfect to read aloud. Clever and colourful illustrations from Peter Carnavas add another layer of fun.

Joyfully read by favourite storyteller, Scott Edgar, this story recognises that all families are different and all pops bring something very special to our lives.
