Why we chose “Daniela The Pirate’

Gender stereotypes have long been an topic of discussion in literature and also in the world of children’s books. We’re always all the more pleased then when we find wonderful picture books that don’t revolve around stereotypical gender roles. Here we talk about the latest addition to our Librio Library. This month, it’s “Daniela The Pirate ” by Susanne Isern and Ana Gomez. 

Daniela The Pirate Cover

Even though everyone is afraid of the dangerous crew of the Black Croc, Daniela makes every effort to find the legendary pirate ship. After all, she also wants to become a pirate. In order to be accepted into the crew of the Black Croc, the girl has to face the difficult challenges the Captain sets her in order to prove her worth as a pirate. Will Daniela be able to fulfill her dream of a pirate life?

During the first pirate test, Daniela has to prove that she can find some fish for the hungry crew members. Of course, the courageous young girl doesn’t need telling twice. Without hesitation, she plunges headlong into the sea to return with a huge amount of fish for the crew. 

Daniela the Pirate is wonderfully and colorfully illustrated and lends an enjoyable look into Pirate life.
