From the Publisher:
Boris von der Borch is a mean, greedy old pirate--tough as nails, like all pirates. Or is he? When a young boy sneaks onto Boris's ship, he discovers that the pirates aren't quite what he expected. Fox's simple, rhythmic text and Brown's vibrant illustrations make for a swashbuckling good time. Full color.
Boris von de Borch is as tough, greedy, and mean a pirate as you're likely to find anywhere--or is he?
Author Bio
Mem Fox
Raised primarily in Rhodesia, Mem Fox wanted to be an actress before becoming an author of books for children. Her first book, POSSUM MAGIC, was published in 1983. In addition to her books for children, she has also written teaching guides and other nonfiction materials. In 1990 she received the Dromkeen Medal, an Australian award for overall contribution to children's literature.


New York Times Book Review
"The chief appeal of 'Tough Borris' is hidden in the many tales it does NOT tell. Its real plot is in the pictures and in the minds of young readers, who will want to soak up every detail. Resisting the temptation to reveal everything, author and illustrator instead give imaginative children something much better--a picture book that luxuriates in pure possibility." - Patricia T. O'Conner 09/11/1994
