Funny Pirate Books to Make Boys Laugh

Pirates! Gotta love them when they aren’t the real kind, right?  These rascals are perfect for making a very funny story and some authors have done a super job writing Funny Pirate Books.

We have a lot of neat (if I do say so myself) pirate things on our site including a couple of other book lists. When I was thinking of what to write for our Best Books for Boys list this week I saw one funny book, had just written a post on Pirate Lunch Box Notes that is coming out soon, ran across something else pirate-y and that made me think that this was the perfect list to do. Odd how those things go sometimes, isn’t it?

So without further delay grab your eye-patch and sail on down to take a look at what we found.

Super funny pirate books! 9 titles that are guaranteed to make your boys laugh out loud.

Pirates Love Underpants, oh yes they do! This silly romp is perfect for your younger boys. They will think it is super funny.

This book, How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long is practically a funny pirate book classic. A young boy learns about pirate life in a very amusing way. Also try the companion book below.

You know what happens when you wake up a little one, don’t you? Well, let’s just say Pirates Don’t Change Diapers and that is a bit of an issue. It is also a bit of a problem that they don’t make the best babysitters.

Pirate Pete’s Talk Like a Pirate will get kids “talking pirate.” A super useful skill, me mateys. He is looking for a new crew but he is super fussy.  He says ““Ye gots to be stubborn and mighty cranky, Ye gots to be dirty and awfully stanky! Ye gots to load a cannon and know how to fire it, But most of all, ye gots to talk like a pirate!”

Crazy! Wild pirate nonsense with fantastic drawings is how I would describe Everything I Know About Pirates. Here is one example: The head pirate (the boss) gets to wear a really poofy white shirt with baggy sleeves that look really cool during sword fights.” See – crazy!

We own this book: The Not So Jolly Roger. In fact we own a lot of books in The Time Warp Trio Series (see Rockin’ Book Series for Boys 7 – 9 for review and more titles.) They are very good and they are all funny. Joe’s uncle gave him a magic book that takes them (often by surprise) on travels through time. In this one the boys meet Blackbeard and you just know that can’t be a good thing.

What boy wouldn’t want their mom to be a pirate?! Well, maybe having a Pirate Mom isn’t so great after all. Mom is hypnotized and things around the house change – just a bit.

And so the tale goes that there is treasure and they should go to find it. Oh, but he forgot to mention The Pirate Cruncher. Kids see the details before the pirates do which makes this a fun read for all. Cartoon-like digital illustrations complete with comic bubbles.

Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs is about a boy who happens to go to the supply closet in school and meet a sobbing pirate. What? Yup, and that closet just happens to open into a whole new world. Absolutely perfect for boys who love both pirates and dinosaurs.

Funny Pirate Books to Make Boys Laugh is just one of the many book lists we have on the site.
