The pirate girl is no ordinary girl. Instead, just like her grandfather, she has sailed the seven seas and delights in any new adventure. That’s precisely why, when the pirate girl receives a mysterious letter from her grandfather, she’s ready to set off without a moment’s hesitation.
The Pirate Girl’s Treasure dares to break the mold of what a picture book can be by incorporating a new medium – Origami. As the story unfolds, Peyton and Hilary Leung weave the steps to not only make a paper-folding boat but also transform it into a T-shirt. The addition of origami works to give the story greater dimension by giving young readers the opportunity to become active participants. Furthermore, The Pirate Girl’s Treasure leaves young girls with the encouraging words that they, too, are “brave and capable” to go on their very own adventures.
