Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
Half-Pint Pete "sailed the seven seas/and plundered with ease" but with only one half of a treasure map he never found the booty he coveted. He and his rowdy crew boarded the ship of Half-Baked Belle intent on pillage and found not only a feisty female with a pink eye patch but the other half of the treasure map. Rather than fight the two joined forces to find the booty. When the hole they dug failed to reveal any loot it was clever Belle who noticed that Pete had the map upside down. Soon they were awash in coins and jewels and decided since they made a perfect pair to sail the seas together. Pirate stories are always in demand but what this rhyming text lacks in storyline it more than makes up for in illustrations. The lively bright acrylics on watercolor paper are filled with humor and will keep the reader engaged. It may not be a first purchase but it still is loads of fun. Reviewer: Beverley Fahey
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—Half-Pint Pete sails half the seven seas with half a treasure map…you get the idea. He and his crew meet Half-Baked Belle and her lady pirates, who happen to have the other half of the map. Pete agrees to work with her, planning all the while to grab the treasure and make her walk the plank, but then, inexplicably, he falls in love with her. Valério's acrylic illustrations glow with color and whimsy, lending a much-needed spark to the thin premise and rhyming text.—Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD
Kirkus Reviews
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of zzzzzz. Half-Pint Pete sails the Seven Seas in search of treasure. Trouble is, Pete only has half a map to his name. When he comes in contact with the equally piratical Half-Baked Belle, a lass in possession of the map's missing parts, the two decide to team up and find the treasure together. Pete's plan to do away with Belle after the gold is uncovered flies out the window when the mission ends successfully and Pete discovers that the two of them make a perfect pair. Bardhan-Quallen presents a perfunctory, if well-scanned, series of alternating rhymes. Children with either a love or a fear of grungy pirates will find that this uniformly cheery, peg-legged crew are a far cry from the murderous plunderers of lore. The art is of a bit more interest. Brazilian illustrator Valério takes care to hide sly details in his colorful, preschool-friendly acrylics (though one wonders why precisely Valério absolutely had to make Pirate Belle so very pink, right down to her rose-colored eye patch). There are many pirate books out there that would best this one in terms of writing, art and general lawless glee, but this meets all the general requirements of an innocuous pirate tale for younger children. Serviceable and forgettable. (Picture book. 3-5)
