Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Henry is not a typical buccaneer bunny. Instead of performing his proper pirating duties, he would rather read the books that he took from other ships. His father, the captain, is not proud of his son and the rest of the crew makes fun of him. When they are shipwrecked on a deserted island, however, it is Henry and his book smarts that save the day. Although the plot is weak, the illustrations are fresh and comical, and send a clear message about the importance of reading.–Lisa S. Schindler, Bethpage Public Library, NY

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 2. As the pirate ship The Salty Carrot sails the high seas, all of the rabbit pirates pitch in to help with the duties except Henry, the captain's son, who prefers to read. After their ship succumbs to a storm, the rabbits find that Henry's trunks of books can act as life rafts, which transport them to a desert island. On land, Henry's vast book learning becomes invaluable, and he provides the rabbit crew with food, shelter, and a means of escape. Manders' watercolor, gouache, and pencil illustrations are the highlight of this effort. His rabbit pirates have huge buckteeth and look especially comical toward the end of the book, when they are elaborately decked out in eighteenth-century finery, including feathered hats and lace trim. Bookworm Henry is rather stereotypically portrayed with huge glasses hung from a string. A story on the joys and usefulness of reading is nothing new, but the funny Buccaneer Bunnies should provide some interest, even to children who are not inspired by the lesson. Todd Morning

Format: Hardcover
This book is classically funny and has a wonderful message for readers of all ages. In this day and age of computer technology it's wonderful to be able to show younger children that books and reading are still the most important learning tool and can get you out of almost any predicament you are in.

In regards to the negative reviews regarding the dry humor (Rabbitson Caruso etc) that actually gave a wonderful opening to share the original historical characters as well as the classic books with my younger children. So they became interested in reading them when they got older.

The "dog" incident was so minor I didnt even notice it til I read the review here but I personally look at it as they dont show them "eating or killing a dog" so its no different than Elmer Fudd talking about turning Bugs Bunny into Rabbit Stew to a child.

This book is hilarious, wonderfully illustrated, and rich in delicious, pirate-like language. This is a light-hearted tale that illustrates why everyone needs to read.

Format: Paperback
A *MUCH, MUCH* better pro-reading story book than "Dog Loves Books." The illustrations are so much funnier, and of course the entire pirate theme is a winner. The bunny pirate flag is a hoot, and all the pirates are well-drawn characters.

At the beginning of the story, Henry is your typical dream-boat reader in a crowd of active outdoorsy-types... but in the end, of course he saves them all with his book knowledge.

This one ranks up there with "Wild About Books" by Judy Sierra for a cheerful, pro-reading message that makes them laugh out loud and read it again.

This is a Christmas present for my son who has been asking about this book ever since he checked it out from the Library. If you have a child who loves pirates, and mine loves anything pirates...this is a great book. Good lesson about people (or rabbits in this case) being different and how if we all work together and use our differences we can make things better.

My son loves loves loves this book!!! We do not own it but have it from the library. He will be sad when we return it. It is fun to read both for my kiddo and myself. I have not tired of reading it yet and if you have a dry sense of humor yourself (some of the reviewers apparently do not), this is a fun book to own and read!

The illustrations are fabulous and the story is cute and silly. It is a children's book, people - review like it is a children's book! If you are looking for something more cerebral than you ought not be reading kid's books! Also, the dog is not being "killed" per say. I think there is more violence in the Disney classics and Grimm's fairy tales. I would highly recommend this to people as a fun read for kids and parents a like!

My three-year old and I found this book in our library. Both of us loved it so much that I made sure she got a copy for Christmas. It is a wonderful story about a pirate bunny that would rather read than do his pirate duties. His reading ends up saving the crew once they are shipwrecked. The author plays with language. It is just a fun book to read. Highly recommend this book!

This is a wonderfully well written and illustrated book, with a great story line. My son has loved this for years and we still love to read it. It was really nice to finally find a pirate book that was approproiate for younger readers. Not only is this about pirates, but teaches children about the invaluable treasure to be found in books!

My 2.5 year old son LOVES this book. The beautiful bold graphics really capture his attention, and he already identifies with Henry. He sees the bunny with the book and says "Like Me!" I know this will help him later on in life. He wants to read it every night now, "Please Pirate Momma?"
