Magic Tree House Pirates Past Noon Chapter 3

Pirates Past Noon is a fun look at the Pirates myth.  Whether there were any pirates as these I will leave it to you to figure out!

If you happened to see this image on a flag, the best thing that you should have done, is to go the other way as fast as you can!  Most pirates only cared about plunder and cash!
