first reading, try again

We had some friends come over for dinner this evening and I tried my first-ever reading of the printed-up version of You Can’t Scare a Princess! with their daughter, Ari. She was not convinced by my pirate voices.

In fact, the whole dinner table went quiet and started laughing at me, and I realised my pirate voice is really just a loud and very exaggerated American accent with lots of hard R’s. So Ari’s dad recommended I listen to a Cornish music group called Fisherman’s Friend, and we found this on YouTube. For some reason, this video had Ari and me rolling about, nearly wetting ourselves with laughter. I’m still not quite sure why, but there you go.

Does anyone know how to learn Piratese very quickly? I could use a lesson.
