Grade 2-3-Three lightly amusing, easy-to-read short stories introduce two pirates with "stinky feet." In the first selection, readers are told where the buccaneers live; that they are not very ferocious, even when hungry; and that they have a cat, Studley, and a dog, Dudley. In the second tale, they realize that they don't have a ship. Unfortunately, after they find one for sale, they discover that they are afraid of the water and buy the captain's van instead, with "PIRATES 'R' US" on the front. In the last story, they convince themselves that they need a parrot. At the pet shop, one bird sings opera, another speaks three languages, but it is Bucko that wins their heart because he only says, "Yo ho!" Smith's cartoonlike color illustrations complement the zany adventures, and the compact text has just enough repetition for beginning readers, who will enjoy these charming protagonists.
