Priate, Priates, Bucaneer*, etc. (for Pirate, Pirates, Buccaneer*, etc.)

September 19 was "Talk Like a Pirate Day," but since it fell on a relatively restful Sunday this year, your little buccaneers may be busting to test out their Arrrrghs at school today. And for the young captain kidds just starting to set sail on their voyages through the 3 R's, you might want to pack a copy of local author James Preller's latest release, A Pirate's Guide to First Grade. We were only able to pull up two cases of Priate and three of Priates in OhioLINK this morning, so while you're down there searching for buried treasure in your own catalog, you might want to check for these typos too, discovered between one to three times apiece: Bucaneer*, Bucanneer*, and Buccanneer*.
