I first saw this book when I was in the first grade. I continued to check it out of the school library and renew it until the teacher told me to let someone else have a turn. My boyhood dream was to actually go underwater in a deep-sea diving suit. Twenty years later I attended a commercial diving school and tried many different kinds of helmets and diving gear. We need to get this book back into print so I can buy many copies for my children, nephews and nieces.

This is the best early reader I've found for my 6-year-old son. (Actually he found it himself in the school library.) Unlike the Cat in the Hat and its ilk (which he loved hearing when he was younger but gets bored reading himself) this has a real plot and a subject that he loves: pirates! and engrossing, exciting pictures. I hope it gets reprinted, and I wish there were a whole series of beginner readers like this!

I searched for this book not knowing the author or anything about the book except the title and a load of childhood memories. I like the others, can vividly remember the tale of a treasure chest lost and the courage to outwit the pirates. Now with a son of my own, I hope I can find this treasure to share with him. I was encouraged to discover so many other wistful searchers like myself. Perhaps together we will see this in print once more!

I have an original edition, which my three-year-old son just loves having me read to him. It was my husband's when he was a child. Unfortunately, because of its age, it is not up to use by a three-year-old. I am very dismayed to learn that I can not obtain a new copy! Please recommend to the publisher to reprint it. There would certainly be a market for such a well written and captivating child's story.

I am a literacy tutor for a second grade boy who is really struggling with reading. Look Out for Pirates! captured his interest and imagination right away. Like magic, he WANTED to read (something that he previously was reluctant to do). I recommend this book for tutors to use with reluctant readers. It is a wonderful book and I wish it was still in print.

When I was a little boy this was my favorite book. My Grandmother read this to me so many times, she could practically recite it without the book! This is a great book for the beginning reader. It only has so many words in it and they are repeated so it's easy for a beginning reader to master. However it's not repetitive. It has a good story and is very nicely illustrated. I loved this book so much I bought two copies for my nephew, one for his house and one for mine. He insists on being read it every night and has learned so many new words. This is a wonderful book, you will be happy with it, I was.

An absolute gem of a book that I can remember reading in my childhood. It's now gone through two generations of my family and is poised for a third. An entertaining story, but with easy vocabulary, it tells a rollicking tale of a valiant yacht crew trying to transport a shipment of gold through danger, storms, and the titular pirates. Good planning, hard work, the creative use of diving suits, and wasp nests all come together to save the day. The illustrations are superbly detailed and realistic. I can't recommend this highly enough for a beginning reader (boy or girl).

This was one of the first books I ever read (back in First Grade!) and it captured my imagination like nothing else. It is a story of pursuing pirates, lost treasure, a castaway shipwreck, and deep sea diving. The illustrations are wonderful. Now I have a 6-year-old son who is ready to start reading, and I hope I can find a copy for him.
