Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Through Tucker's thirteen brief, bouncy verses, buccaneer wanna-bes can explore their career choice... A good scratch for any story hour crowd itching for some silliness." - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A rhyming q&a format recounts the habits of a group of rowdy pirates, who dine on seaweed and don't wear underwear. Ages 3-6. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
PreS-K-Rolling motion characterizes both words and pictures in this pleasant book. Bouncy, six-line verses provide colorful, innocent answers to 13 childlike questions. Readers learn that pirates eat barnacle stew, scrub their knees with seashells, and dance the hornpipe every afternoon. Even when they seize a ship, they merely tie their captives up with ``good strong rope.'' Lighthearted illustrations add to the vision of jolly sea villains. Caricatures drawn with fluid lines and filled in with sunny acrylics show the men in constant motion. They toss food into their mouths, do cannonball dives into the ocean, and march across the plank to another ship with arm-waving, strutting gusto. Only when they are cozily swaying in their hammocks, dreaming of their mothers, are they still. Young children already fascinated with pirates will be pleased with the jovial picture this book paints.-Nancy Seiner, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
