( — April 18, 2014) Albuquerque, NEW MEXICO —  In recent years, pirate stories and pirate-themed events have been enormously popular; however pirate movies and real pirates in the news are better suited to older audiences. Asher and Watson Set Sail: A Pirate’s Book For Children, the latest book to be published by the small family-owned company Little Pearl Publishing, is an adventurous tale perfect for readers aged 5+ and listeners of all ages if they are young at heart.


Little Pearl Publishing and the author are making the Kindle book free through April 21 only on (normally priced at $2.99.) Included are jolly pictures by illustrator Marina Veselinovic, one of Little Pearl’s in-house artists. The paperback version is also available on Amazon for $8.99 and makes a great gift. This pirate book for kids offers more than the bountiful golden treasure of the nefarious Captain Zephyr. Sweet little pearls of wisdom are sprinkled throughout the story by author, mom, and yoga/meditation teacher Julie Schoen.  

The story introduces readers to Asher Barry on the most special day of the year- his birthday. He receives a thoughtful yet unassuming gift of a toy pirate ship which, during bath time, has completely unforeseen implications. Asher gets the biggest birthday surprise of his life when, by a mishap, he unexpectedly becomes a real pirate!  Faced with stormy seas, the dangerously foreboding Hog’s Head Island, and a bounty of other unexpected challenges, Asher demonstrates wit, courage and care for Watson, his faithful yet clumsy doggie-turned-first-mate. They set their sites on discovering untold riches of pirate booty, experiencing the seemingly impossible adventure, and making it home in time for dinner. Will the birthday luck run out or will the new pirate team be victorious in the end? Bury your nose this gripping pirate book to find out.  


Schoen, the author of 27 books, including 4 stories for children and numerous online and magazine articles, says the pirate book for children is even more fun if it is experienced with the reader’s own imagination. This gripping day in the life of such realistic characters will last in the memory of the reader long after the book is closed. Having an eye patch, pirate hat, and/or parrot handy while reading is not necessary, but they sure do help enrich the literary pirate experience!
