Editorial Reviews

Review

“The deft, engaging verse interspersed with pirate lingo is complemented neatly by McElmurry’s precise and detailed illustrations .... A winning combination of smart and silly, this yarn will make a welcome addition to princess and pirate storytimes, as well as a good choice for one-on-one sharing.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Praise for HAMPIRE!: “Building suspense and a sense of nocturnal dread, Bardhan-Quallen’s (The Hog Prince) rhymes are filled with puns (’”We’re sitting ducks,” the duck announced’), and the antics of the frantic duck and the animals he rouses should have readers laughing.” (Publishers Weekly)

Praise for HAMPIRE!: “Kids will feast on this deliciously scary tale over and over. ” (Kirkus Reviews)

Praise for HAMPIRE!: “Fine’s paintings exaggerate the animals’ terror to comic effect (funniest is the pony cowering in the corner), and his canted angles give this just the right absurdist tone.” (ALA Booklist)

A fabulous read aloud! The rhyme and rhythm is pulsing. Vocabulary great to learn and encourage. While I enjoyed this much more than my young preschooler daughter I am sure in a year or two this would provide many a laugh. I love it. Highly recommended for library read alouds as well as a classroom read.

My three=year-old granddaughter was a Pirate for Halloween. She is also always playing"Princess". So it was an idea of mine to combine the two in one book. She liked it very much. Since the little girl was probably much like her, very adventurous, but sometimes getting herself in trouble.

My daughter is all about princesses and fairies, so I wasn't sure she'd like this book but she loves it. It's a cute story with nice rhyming and a little humor, too. I love that I can read her a princess story without all the sparkles and glitter and girly stuff. This story is about adventure...

This was a cute use of rhyme to tell a different kind of story. My granddaughter loved the story because she lives pirates and princesses.

My 4 year old daughter and I love reading this book together about a princess who isn't into the dressing up stuff, can't cook, and doesn't clean very well.....none of which bother her as she is more into having a grand adventure.

My daughter loves the rhyming, lyrical style of the book. And I LOVE the message that life doesn't start when the prince shows up.
