Outskirts Press Announces the Release of The Irate Pirate, New Juvenile Fiction by James Edward Best

October 29, 2017 – Denver, CO and Minneapolis, MN – Jim Best’s hilarious new children’s book teaches self-determination without being preachy or professorial. The Irate Pirate features a young pirate-to-be who simply doesn’t want to be a pirate! The book has been published by Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service self-publishing and book marketing company.

Petie is all set to become the next great swashbuckling pirate—to fulfil the expectations of his family, friends and teachers. But he is starting to doubt his future path. Does he really want a patch for an eye? A hook for a hand? Or a peg leg? And who wants to deal with bilge water?! But the real problem is that Petie knows it’s wrong to take things from others against their will.

Now that Petie has decided the pirate’s life is not for him, he’ll have to tell his mom and his pirate dad. How will he deal with his friends at school and the Pirate-in-Principal, Mr. Plankwell? What about the pirates-to-be bullies at recess?

Knowing what we don’t want is never enough, and Petie must determine his own life path. In his casual, endearing way, he lets the reader in on how to deal with those challenges. The Irate Pirate reminds us all to be true to ourselves and honest with our loved ones. It’s a light-hearted, heartfelt, fun story for the family, and for the ages.
