|Was Ist Was Band 071: Piraten|
Was Ist Was Band 071: Piraten is a German book of the "Was ist Was" book series, which aims to teach history and science to children.

The name translates to "What is What? Volume 071: Pirates". The book is the 71st book in a series of (as of 2017) 140 volumes. The edition of 2005 features Hector Barbossa and several other pirates on the front cover. The current edition (2013) features a Jack Sparrow look-a-like.
