Jimothy Oliver is a U.K.-based illustrator who produces commissioned work for clients worldwide.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

At parties he’d forever be shouting, More pirate food for me! So people thought, What a rude little pirate!” and didn’t invite him to tea.

When he told his crew what to do, he wouldn’t say please” he’d moan!

So they left him behind on an island far away and all alone.

And that’s how Pirate Jim was taught the most important lesson you’ll learn: be polite to other people and they’ll be polite in return.
