Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Review

"Monescillo's detailed and gently textured watercolors are full of insouciant pirate energy (Charlotte Jane's bravado is matched by that of her surly teddy bear, who wears an eye patch), and Wolfe's text has as much charm and verve as her heroine."—Publishers Weekly
 
"[This] bedtime story is satisfying, and casting a little girl as a pirate is downright refreshing."—Kirkus Reviews
 
 
"The use of dialogue and strong vocabulary results in a well-paced story that flows elegantly from beginning to end. The whimsical watercolor illustrations–accompanied by digitally created textures to add depth–are captivating, and perfectly complement the text. A generous helping of humorously entertaining pirate speak makes this an enjoyable choice for readers and listeners alike."—School Library Journal

My 6- and 9-year-old daughters (one of whom is named "Charlotte June") LOVE this book! Got it from the library, but decided to buy it after my sleepy Charlotte whispered, "Juicy sweet dreams, me bucko!" to me before dropping off to sleep one night. Adorable!

Format: Hardcover
Charlotte Jane was born to a land locked pirate couple. She is an extraordinary little pirate girl. And she has lots of oomph. But she has decided that bedtime is not a juicy activity. She would much rather do other things like swashbuckling and treasure hunts. So she stays up later and later until one day she doesn't go to bed at all. The problem is, she no longer has oomph and cannot do the activities she so loves. Her parents try to help her find her oomph, but they are not successful. Charlotte Jane finally finds it in here feather bed after a nice full sleep.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations were created in watercolor. They are absolutely adorable and creative from the very first page. I love the details such as the treasure chest cradle, the house shaped as a ship, and all the Piratey details. The pictures are colorful and fun.

THE GOOD: I absolutely loved this book. These pirate parents showed so much love for their spirited little girl. The pirate elements tickled me pink( I do love a good pirate picture book). And of course this story shows what happens when little girls (even the hearty pirate children) don't go to bed when they should. I highly recommend this story!
THE DIFFICULT: There are quite a few big words this book that will need to be explained to the younger crowd such as hearty, formidable, and en garde.
NOTE: There is a lot of sword play
AGE RECOMMENDATION: Advertised for ages 4-8 which is a good age range. I don't know that I would recommend this necessarily as a bedtime story because of the high energy in the story.

Charlotte Jane, like her parents, is a pirate through and through. And she's not happy with this whole "bedtime" idea, so she decides she just won't. After all, it keeps her from doing all the fun stuff! But will the fun stuff be as fun without any sleep? Monescillo's art is so rich, I loved looking at it. One of our fave kids' books about pirates. And bedtime. And awesome girls!

This is such a fun, spunky story!! I really like the variety of vocabulary ( ex: oomph, pomegranate) and that Charlotte is soo not a Princess!! The illustrations are beautiful and perfectly enhance the story :) I give this book as a gift any chance I get and everybody loves it!

My family is 3/4 night owls [me and my kiddos]. We do battle bedtime, but this story is a fun way to try to remind ourselves we need rest :)

This is a great book for kids who don't love bedtime. It's about a girl pirate who fought sleep and won, and the consequences that followed. The language is just delicious and the illustrations are adorable. It is a big hit with my daughter.

I purchased this book for my grandbaby. I am SO pleased with it. The story is wonderfully thought out and my grandbaby loves it! What truly impressed me as well was the incredibly beautiful artwork in the book. The colors are rich and warm and very inviting, which is really important when reading to a smaller child (age 2). Praises for this author. I hope to see more from her and would suggest this book for anyone who wants a truly wonderful book for your child's bookshelf! Spread the news, this author is great!
