Editorial Reviews

Review

Veiled in humor, but hard not to read as a parable that tweaks narrow minds and parochial attitudes.
—Kirkus Reviews

My four year old son has been a pirate fanatic for about a year, so we have about 25 pirate books. I had pre-ordered this for his birthday, even though the release date was about a month later. We have The Pirate Cruncher as well, and we love it. So I figured this book would surely be as good. And it is!

I am always impressed when truly talented children's authors can rhyme stories and mix in humor and sentiment. The illustrations are so colorful, vibrant and cute without being too childish. It's the perfect length as well, so my son is satisfied when we're done, and the story isn't lacking for anything.

I'm excited and hopeful that Johnny Duddle will write another great pirate tale! We'd like to see the Jolly Rogers take on the Pirate Cruncher!

This is a delightful book with pictures that have tons to look at and make my five year old and I laugh. For older children there is the possibillity to talk about deciding who or what people are like based on what they look like but for now we just read the story. I don't mind repeated readings which is a plus.

I should have believed the reviews I read on this but I really wanted a pirate book, and the illustrations were great, so I bought it anyway. What a mistake! The neighbors stereotype the pirates and don't want anything to do with them. Their attitudes remind one of something out of the 1950s. Of course, everything changes when the pirates leaves each of them gold. The story was so appalling that I actually made up a story to go with the pictures, rather than reading the text to my granddaughters. I didn't even want to donate the book because I don't think it's appropriate for any children. With so many wonderful picture books to choose from, do yourself a favor and pass on this one.

This book is fantastic. Brilliant story and amazing illustrations. Better yet you get the chance to try your best pirate impression, what more could you want from a book? There is also a strong moral about not judging people until you get to know people

My pirate-obesessed three year old loved this book. I love all the small details in the illustrations that are carried throughout the book like trying to find an octopus on almost every page somewhere. Great cadence and rhyme to the story. A few not-so-common words such as galleon, cutlasses, etc, that had to be explained, which is great for vocabulary building. I definitely recommend it.
