Letters of Marque!

Black Kraken Books is pleased to announce the imminent publication of our first title, "Letters of Marque: ABCs for the Savvy Scalawag"! Author Renee Peterson and illustator Garren Haskell have teamed up to focus their talents, with captivating results! This 32-page, fully illustrated book is filled with delightful pictures, snappy rhymes, vivid colors, and an engaging hunt for hidden letters. Both parents and children will love this intelligent, nautically-themed paperback.

Do you like pirates? Are you trying to get your pirate-crazy child to want to read? Are you a parent looking for an intelligent children's picture book that doesn't talk down to children? Perhaps you're simply tired of the saccharin-sweet offerings typical of children's educational literature?

If the answer to any of the above is "yes," you'll want to bookmark this blog!

From Anchor to Yarrr!, small swashbucklers are offered an alternative to the standard "A: Apple" boredom.

"Letters of Marque" is coming soon, so stay tuned for previews, reviews, sneak peeks, and your choice between secure E-store and Amazon links for purchasing!
