Review

Reviewed by Anne B for Readers Favorite
5 Star Review

I love children to use their imaginations. In their mind they can go anywhere, do anything, even become a pirate and find a treasure. "Penelope the Purple Pirate" by Melissa Northway is a fun book for children. Both parents and teachers will love the story as much as their children.

About the Author

Melissa has been writing and creating since she was a youngster. She took her own adventure after college where she lived and worked in Japan as an ESL teacher. During her three years in Japan she traveled throughout Vietnam and Thailand, which has inspired her writing. Her little tomboy was the inspiration to write about a fun and spunky character who likes to have adventures with her friends, while at the same time teach children the importance of treating others with kindness and respect. She has a Masters in Nutrition and plans to write fun nutrition books for children.

Format: Paperback
I read Penelope the Purple Pirate to my five year old and she was delighted. She asked me to read it a second time, and third and . . . . . This book packs a double punch. First with a beautifully written adventurous story then as an added bonus, fun facts about real pirates and sea animals. This one of my little girl's favorite books and it's one of my favorites because while she's taking this fun adventure with Penelope, she is learning too. Hurray for Penelope the a Purple Pirate!

My 9 year old daughter, who has a very active imagination, loves this book! she wishes that she was a pirate now as well. As a teacher I will be bringing this book to school as a read-aloud for my students too.

Thank you for writing such a fun and wonderful book.

Here's proof, little girls can be anything they want to be, even if its in play or make-believe! Reading these types of stories to little ones inspires them in fun ways and sometimes translates to real life

Format: Paperback
After receiving this book, my son couldn't wait to lay down and read it to me. He just loved it! It was full of adventure, full of excitement and animation to keep his attention locked dead on. My son is 11 and has autism and it is hard finding books that keep his attention longer than the first two pages. Not only did this book keep his attention past the first two pages, he read the entire book to me straight through. He made different voices, was animated when it got exciting and just had a great time reading it. It was a great bonus for him with the "gold" coin and book mark. Thank you for such a great book we can all enjoy! It's nice having my son read to me for a change! ;)

Great adventure story - boys and girls will both like Penelope. She's a lot of fun -- strong minded and imaginative! Beautiful illustrations and it comes with a lot of facts and projects at the end if you want to make it more of an educational experience as well. I also bought the e-book on itunes for my nephew and he loved it. It occupied him on a long drive and - it's interactive and narrated. He wanted more Penelope stories!

We all loved this book. I wish it was out when my oldest, who is thirteen, was younger. My daughter liked the idea of a girl pirate going on adventures. We also liked the "smiling" skeleton face and the "fun facts" at the end of the book.

Both my kids love this book! They ask me to read it over and over and each time it sparks different questions that also make it a learning experience. It teaches values such as respect,acceptance, sharing and consideration for others.
