Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Pre-S—Grade 2-Following the recipe for their well-received Class Two at the Zoo (Carolrhoda, 2007), Jarman and Chapman cook up another field-trip fiasco, this one full of high jinks on the high seas. As soon as Class Three boards its boat, a pirate ship appears on the horizon, but the students are too busy untangling an octopus "tied up in knots" to notice. Before long, goggle-eyed pirates with appropriately icky names like Fish Breath Frank and Booger Nose overtake and board the ship, wreaking havoc as they manhandle children, force Lenny to walk the plank, and threaten death to all if Captain Keith doesn't take them straight to Treasure Island. Meanwhile, their teacher is busy receiving amorous overtures from one of the buccaneers. By story's end, Octopus has repaid the children's kindness by recruiting his big brother to help him vanquish the bad guys, the teacher is engaged to Pirate Pip, and Class Three is happily unearthing some buried treasure. The bright, Caribbean-colored pastel cartoons are a standout, redeeming a somewhat choppy and nonsensical rhyming text. Intrepid youngsters will thrill to the pirates' slapstick antics and will appreciate the amusing visual details, such as a seagull "plop, plop, plopping" on a sea lion's head. Use this for a swashbuckling storytime.—Amy Rowland, Guggenheim Elementary School, Port Washington, NY

This is a follow-up book to CLASS TWO AT THE ZOO, which I haven't read yet. This is a delightful and fun -- albeit scary -- tale told in rhyme. Class Three At Sea has the teacher and her class board a tour boat so the kids can see and learn all about sea creatures. They don't notice the pirate ship behind them. The pirates board the tour boat and chaos ensues. One child is forced to walk the plank. One pirate holds several children upside down. Chief pirate Rotten Teeth forces tour boat captain Keith to sail directly to a small island. The teacher falls in love with one of the pirates! Can you guess what happens to Class Three, their teacher, and Captain Keith when they reach the small island? You'll just have to read this book to find out. I especially loved the very funny illustrations by Lynne Chapman. If I was 5, I'd be afraid of all the scary pirates and what happens to the children, but I also know that pirates are "in" these days and children are exposed to a lot more than I was at age 5 - you know, back in the dark ages! All in all, this is a fun book with lots going on in it. Your children will love it.

Class Three at Sea is a whimsical, rhyming children's picturebook following a class of children on a field trip aboard a boat. They enjoy the sights and befriend an octopus in need, and the octopus turns out to be their best ally when pirates take over the ship! With help from sea creatures, the pirates are overthrown, and the kids make the miraculous discovery of an island of treasure. A playful storybook that never takes itself too seriously, Class Three at Sea is a cheery adventure from cover to cover. Also sure to delight young readers is the previous picturebook in the series, "Class Two at the Zoo".
