Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Justin Roth is a talent. His drawings are full of life, and demonstrate all that is wonderful about traditional drawing and design. I am sure that this book will inspire and be cherished by art lovers and children alike."-Martin Wittig, illustrator

“Let's see... a jolly band of misfit pirates take their flying ship to an amusement park in search of treasure - while there they're bombarded with parents wanting to take pictures, kids thinking it's ok to climb on the pirates, and security guards who just don't understand that it's all in good fun....Baltazar and the Flying Pirates is more or less the tale I just described, brought to life in colorful, friendly artwork. The pirates are a misfit crew indeed, with some members you may recognize (Anne Bonney, Long John Silver) and still more that are new to this story (Flynn, Captain Redlocks, Big Queeq, etc.) Each is a character is unique and memorable as their names, to say nothing of the story's "every boy" protagonist, with the truly unusual name of Baltazar. It's an amusing story that should be well enjoyed by any younger buccaneers, along with their parents, older siblings, or captains.” - Bilge Munky
