School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-While out yachting, Fluffy, a dapper poodle, is caught by canine pirates. As they begin to taunt him for his foppish clothes and his name, he resourcefully declares that he is the boldest and most powerful pirate, "the scourge of the sea." The skeptical captain challenges the newcomer to a duel, which Fluffy wins handily. He then goes on to outsing, outcook, and outthink the buccaneer captain, resulting in the crew putting him out to sea and declaring Fluffy their new leader. After the poodle teaches the dogs that being cute will reward them more than plundering, they clean up the ship and themselves and become hugely successful and endearing pooches. The bouncing rhyming text is perfectly matched by the watercolor art. Using plenty of white space, the contrast of scurvy crew and the dandyish poodle will tickle young readers. Yo ho ho for Fluffy!-Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha's Public Library, WI Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
