Eight year-old Lucy and her goofy pal Little Chucky are searching for buried treasure, but a gang of bumbling pirates keeps getting in the way! The kids get some help from their new ocean-dwelling friends, including enthusiastic superhero Lobster Boy, his reluctant sidekick Crabby, and an overgrown sea monkey.
“Everybody Loves Pirates” features 15 of our hand-crafted mouth and rod puppets, and an 8 foot paper-mache pirate ship.

Storywalks were created as a way to combine literacy, physical activity, and fresh air. Visit Webster Park to follow our current story, Hector Fox and the Giant Quest by Astrid Sheckels. At each stop you'll find a page from the story and activity to do. We plan to rotate new stories in once every season. Read about our story walk in the BDN here!
