The Nice Pirate Named Eloise

There is something in many of us that’s drawn to be like pirates, though we may not want to pillage and steal. What is it that we like about pirates? This book affirms children’s desires to be like a pirate, yet pulls out the good qualities that can be turned to the truly admirable. Coloring pages are available on Eloise’s site,


Eloise came out of the suggestion of a former student. I posted a picture of me in a pirate costume online, and he made the comment, “Ms. G., you should write a book about pirates!” I think he was expecting a swashbuckling novel, not a picture book. Oh well! I love Eloise.


I’m also working with Jennifer Roselund to get some of the books she wrote as a child published.
