There was an old pirate who swallowed a map. I don't know why she swallowed a map — ARGH! — but it wasn't a trap!

Scholastic's bestselling OLD LADY is starring in a brand-new adventure series that will make you laugh AND learn! In this new spin-off, the OLD LADY turns into an OLD PIRATE who travels across the seas, swallowing a map . . . and a rope, and a sword, and a spyglass, and an anchor, and a flag, and a treasure. . . Why? Well, it was a pleasure to swallow that treasure!

Two new characters lead the reader through this hilarious adventure while exchanging some awesome facts about life on the open seas for a light take on non-fiction that's perfect for this age. With expanded back matter about life on a ship and a search-and-find game at the end, this OLD PIRATE definitely has sea legs!
