Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In three chapters we learn that these pirates may want to appear as "blackharts" but they really aren't. They want some seafood for dinner and instead of stealing form the cook they end up using some of their loot to pay for it. To be proper pirates they need a ship. When the day comes that they can purchase the Jolly Roger, they discover than neither of them likes the sea. No problem, the captain sells them a minivan, which suits them just fine. The final accoutrement for a pirate's life is a parrot. The pet storeowner has plenty of talented birds but nothing that will fit the bill until they spot a small gray parrot wearing a patch. What could be better? This parrot thinks he is a pirate and can only say "yo ho, yo ho." The drawings have plenty of silliness and go right along with these silly pirates. Pair this with Everything I know About Pirates by Tom Lichtenheld. A "Viking Easy-to-Read" Level 3 selection. 2002, Penguin Putnam Books,
— Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
Gr 2-3-Three lightly amusing, easy-to-read short stories introduce two pirates with "stinky feet." In the first selection, readers are told where the buccaneers live; that they are not very ferocious, even when hungry; and that they have a cat, Studley, and a dog, Dudley. In the second tale, they realize that they don't have a ship. Unfortunately, after they find one for sale, they discover that they are afraid of the water and buy the captain's van instead, with "PIRATES 'R' US" on the front. In the last story, they convince themselves that they need a parrot. At the pet shop, one bird sings opera, another speaks three languages, but it is Bucko that wins their heart because he only says, "Yo ho!" Smith's cartoonlike color illustrations complement the zany adventures, and the compact text has just enough repetition for beginning readers, who will enjoy these charming protagonists.-Carol Schene, Taunton Public Schools, MA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Here's a silly pirate story for the brand new reader, a hilarious marriage of words and illustrations meant to entertain and build reading confidence. Though not meant to be a phonetic reader, there's lots of repetition and rhyme to help the emergent reader feel confident while reading a tale that amuses and keeps those pesky pages turning. Pirate Pete and Pirate Joe and their pets, Dudley and Studley, live the adventurous life. Do they plunder and pillage? NO. They like to play the hornpipe, limbo, collect seashells, and count coins. They want to eat, but they do not want to steal food; they want a ship, but they do not like the sea. So they spend their coins on dinner and buy a used mini-van instead. Eventually, they purchase a parrot who can say just one phrase, "Yo ho." Smith's cartoonish illustrations are a critical part of the story, providing visual clues and entertaining the reader. Speech bubbles and labels pointing out "cook, treasure chest, and pirate flag" all add to the fun. Yo ho! Away we go! Let's hope for many more adventures from these pirates. (Easy reader. 5-8)
