written by Karin Frimodig  & Sara Berg & illustrated by Maria Poll
 
PirateIn the port, a ship is moored, with a curious crew aboard. Its sails are black as midnight, there’s not a wave in sight. We’re off to sea. Pirates, set sail!  Meet a lively bunch of pirates looking for treasure at the end of the rainbow.
“When rhymes in the text interplay so ingeniously with pictures of multifaceted pirates, you can’t help but to see The Pirates and the Rainbow Treasures as a future classic. (…) A discussion about everything that goes on in the illustrations becomes immensely fun. We need to turn ingrained patterns upside down, this book turns most things upside down and it does so brilliantly.” The society Barnboksbildens Vänner
