Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Bonnie Bruneau
Lo-Jack goes on an interesting adventure after he is kidnapped and brought aboard a pirate ship. The pirates on the ship put Lo-Jack to work as a cabin boy. The captain of the ship, Captain Grim, gives Lo-Jack orders, however, Lo-Jack delibertly misinterprets the captain's instructions, which results in amusing outcomes. A must read for those who love a good adventure and who love to laugh.

Bantam. 1991. Tr $9.99. pap. $3.50. PreS-Gr 3-- Lion and Lamb's friendship continues as the focal point in this third book about the duo. Primary graders will have no trouble identifying with lamb when she is excluded from the ``Members Only'' club, has to baby-sit for her little sister, and is sad when Lion moves. Degen's pen-and-watercolor illustrations create a sense of warmth and add details that reinforce the text and the humor of the three episodes. Hooks's Lo-Jack and the Pirates is highly reminiscent of Peggy Parish's ``Amelia Bedelia'' series (HarperCollins). When Jack is kidnapped by pirates, confusion abounds due to his literal interpretation of their words and phrases. The bold and zany pen-and-ink and watercolor cartoons are key to understanding Jack's mis understandings. However, neither the text nor the illustrations are enough to put Lo-Jack in the same league as Amelia Bedelia. --Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
