Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2—What could be better than a tale of treasure and pirates at sea? Dinosaurs swabbing the decks. To the rhythm of rhyming verse, a young recruit struggles to master the tasks of a simple sailor under the tyrannical rule of Captain Rex on a ship steered by Bronto Beard, navigated by the sharp-eyed Velocimate, and served daily meals prepared by Triceracook. Unfortunately, there's a traitor on board—an underhanded pterosaur on flight from another ship, leading them blindly into ambush. Only the smallest pirasaur can see a solution to help both crews find the treasure coveted by each. Angular and toothily aggressive depictions of the pirasaur crew bring the digital cartoons to life. Shadows over a treasure map emphasize the minute hero as he nervously points to the X that marks treasure, while strong profiles of crew members catch the eye. Young readers may test their knowledge of dinosaurs and pirate traditions to identify a crew member or create the next zany pirasaur adventure on the high seas. VERDICT A rip-roaring read-aloud for storytime or small group sharing.—Mary Elam, Learning Media Services, Plano ISD, TX


“Prehistoric pirates are always worth a play, as is the peaceable theme…” - Kirkus

"Funk (Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast) handles this mashup with just the right combination of swagger and heart; his succinct, bouncy text should inspire rollicking read-alouds. Slack's (Race Car Count) richly textured digital artwork may, in this context, bring to mind images painted on a ship's deck. -- Publishers Weekly

Praise for Josh Funk
"When I was a kid my best friend was Josh Funk. I think he's about to become a friend to a whole new generation of kids." - B.J. Novak, author of #1 New York Times Bestseller The Book with No Pictures

Praise for Michael Slack's Elecopter
"The author of Monkey Truck (Holt, 2011) takes his characters to the skies with the highly versatile and helpful Elecopter, an elephant blessed with the main rotor, tail rotor, and landing skids of a helicopter." -- School Library Journal

"Ahh! The cuteness! It blinds! Well, that's what you get when you take a rotund, big-eyed baby elephant, give her landing gear and helicopter blades, and send her into the savanna to save animals. Kids will instinctively get it and probably love it." -- Booklist

"Giggle-inducing humor and nail-biting action..." -- Publishers Weekly
