Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 13 Yolen's writing in this book is rhythmic but confusing. Commander Toad is captain of Star Warts and Mr. Hop, a frog, is his co-pilot. They are on a long trip, ``a boring trip . . . They have played leapfrog and hopscotch and croak-kay.'' The puns are abun dant but seem to be included only for effect. In many cases they are awkward and will not make sense to a beginning- to-read audience. Pirates, led by Com mander Salamander, board the Star Warts. They make the crew play a dan gerous game, ``Hop the Plank.'' By the time children wade through the confus ing text, they won't care whether the crew escapes. Most of Degen's illustra tions are black-and-white drawings, while a few are rendered in three col ors. All seem harsh and uninviting. The characters as illustrated seem very neu tral. There is nothing endearing about any of the ``good'' characters, and the ``villains'' are just ugly and unattrac tive. With so many other beginning-to- read books available, libraries can well pass on this one. Consider instead the books by James Marshall, Else Min arik, Arnold Lobel, and others.

    It was ok

    Have you ever heard of a book called Commander Toad and the Space Pirates? The main characters of the story are, Mr. Hop, and Commander Toad. This is about playing games and the Pirates. Commander Toad is green and slimy, Mr. Hop is very nice. Mr. Hop had Commander Toad's ship hooked onto his. To get more information read Commander Toad and the Space Pirates. I don't like Commander Toad and the Space Pirates because it's too easy for me I wonder why Commander Toad and the Space Pirates is mostly about playing games , but the cover doesn't say that . In my opinion I wouldn't read it again because I hate it. My book is not good. I don't recommend my brother to read Commander Toad and the Space Pirates because it's too easy for him and me, because my brother is in middle school. I only recommend it to 2nd graders and 1st graders because they will like the pictures because they are cool, the words are too easy to read.
