Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—"Thar be a treasure map inside!" proclaims the grotesque cartoon pirate on the cover of this title. There is indeed a detachable map tucked inside the front cover, which includes some "golden nuggets of pirate lore." The story itself is a confused mélange of pirate clichés and hasty retellings of various fairy tales. The hero, Jack Hubbard, sets out on a voyage with his long-lost uncle, Cap'n Horatio Hubbard. When the pirate captain's treasure map falls into the ocean, Jack dives after it, and then swims ashore to seek his fortune. He finds it at the end of a breakneck jaunt through several fairy tales and nursery rhymes. The narrative is awkward and erratic, often overestimating the vocabulary of its target audience, and the page layout is crowded and unattractive. Melinda Long's How I Became a Pirate (Harcourt, 2003) or Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith's The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales (Viking, 1992) are far richer choices.—Rachael Vilmar, Atlanta Fulton Public Library, GA

Review

Format: Hardcover
I borrowed this book from the library, because my 5 year old loves pirates. I didn't know that there is a pirate map inside, but my little man knew! The story is very cute, and has a little bit of suspense at the end of the story. It is a great book to read out loud. You might want to practice on your pirate speaking skills before you read this book out loud, though!

Format: Hardcover
Kids ages 4-8 will find intriguing the cartoon-style of drawing paired with a lively treasure hunt plot in PIRATE TREASURE MAP: A FAIRYTALE ADVENTURE. A zany sailor who loves mac and cheese grub and tankards of dandelion invites his nephew on a treasure hunt - with fun results. Even reluctant readers will be motivated by the easy format and vivid adventures, making it a fine pick for grades 2-4.
