Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The cookie-loving pirates from previousYARG! efforts return as the featured players in this unrelentingly pun- and gag-filled adventure. Escaping from a desert island, the pirates tackle everything from the justice system and going into business to relationships and dealing with mothers (all in an age-appropriate fashion, of course) as they trade blows and jokes with a bunch of rather hoity-toity Vikings. The point here is not serious social commentary but rather to offer as many jokes per page (and panel, and word balloon) as possible. While some will fly over the heads of the intended readership, it hardly matters given their extraordinary density. It’s notable that if manga is the reigning graphic format art style for young adults these days, the style for younger readers is quickly settling upon what is on display here—a lighthearted, animation-inspired use of cartoon figures, digital colors, and rough backgrounds—so that the transition from reading to television and back is becoming disturbingly seamless. Grades 4-6. --Jesse Karp

By Mr. Bcc Paddon on May 12, 2009
Format: Paperback
Ray Friesen's latest collection is nothing short of marvelous. As ever, Ray manages to combine wonderfully funny gags and jokes with out-and-out cuteness. It's a one-two punch - Ray draws people in with his solid artwork and character design, then knocks them silly with Pythonesque humour (albeit G-rated Pythonesque humour).

This collection begins with our principle characters - an assortment of patently ridiculous pirates and the obligatory talking parrot - marooned on a desert island. I shan't explain the story, as I don't to spoil the plot (which is hardly "The Godfather" but is, as usual with Friesen's work, very witty and sharp), but there are some cracking set pieces and some brilliant jokes here that wouldn't seem out of place in Red Dwarf or, perhaps more appropriately, The Secret of Monkey Island.

Friesen is remarkably good at what he does, and Cupcakes Of Doom is a superb collection of probably his finest work to date. Fans of good comedy (or, at the very least, pirates) will adore this work. Buy it, read it, love it.

And remember: Whoever has the biggest hat wins! :)

Format: Paperback
This book by Ray Friesen, master of hilariousness, is about an unusual group of pirates: Captain Scurvybeard (who's not a very good captain), Peg Leg Pete (who doesn't have a peg leg), No eyes Johnson (who has both eyes), YoHoJoe (who looks nothing like a pirate) and Lester (who isn't ... I mean IS a parrot). Also, new pirates came like Peg Leg Jamie and Gramma. In the beginning of the story, they are "marooned" on a freakishly small island. (See Lookit! Vol. 2 for full story.) The mainland was only a mile away, but they took wood from their boat to build a fire, and Pete and Lester took out the nails for a nail-throwing contest. I got my copy on Christmas morning, and Mom had to drag me away from it to make me open other presents. The pirates were the villains in Lookit! Vol 2, and as Ray said, magically became the heroes in "Cupcakes of Doom"! - Reviewed by Michael, age 11.
