Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gr 1-3-This book features lots of humor and harmless high jinks for newly fluent readers. After Pirates Pete and Joe do their chores (digging up treasure, counting coins, and re-burying their loot), they head off to play at the Pirate Queen's lighthouse. With a bit of trepidation, they enter her lighthouse castle and announce, "`Ding-dong! Pirates calling!'" With swords drawn and rattling, they search under her bed and in the hot tub, and finally find her as she arrives with arms full of seafood. It turns out that she is their mother. After they eat, play, and go bowling, she reads them a bedtime story. These pirates could be any age, adding a dimension to their pretend play. The lively, accessible text is extended with cartoon illustrations featuring bold colors and characters whose exaggerated features will be welcome by readers who need a break from cutesy, pastel images. Dialogue balloons and humorous pirate-related details in the art add to the fun. Beginning readers will find this a welcome treasure.-Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Avast! The landlocked tars of On the Go with Pirate Pete and Pirate Joe (2002) return for another hilarious set of encounters. Hopping into their minivan, the "Jolly Roger," with pets Dudley, Studley, and Bucko, the eye-patched duo hies off to visit the Pirate Queen-" �The Pirate Queen is NOT sweet,' says Pirate Pete. �The Pirate Queen has stinky feet,' says Pirate Joe. �Yo ho!'" The Pirate Queen turns out to be their Mom, who makes a grand entrance trailed by her stunt duck Duck-O, roars out every word in ALL CAPS, sets a fine table of crabs, eels, and jellyfish on toast, and then leads the party off to Disco Dan's House of Pins for some rocking, rolling, and bowling. With big-print dialogue that will have new readers rolling in the scuppers, to go with high-energy illustrations festooned with pirate symbols and cartoon dingbats, this won't be headed for Davy Jones's locker any time soon. Yos and Hos galore. (Easy reader. 6-8)
