    Reviewed by Anne B. for Readers Favorite

    It is nap time but Penelope doesn’t want to go to bed yet. She dons her purple pirate hat, white shirt and pants, wraps her purple sash around her waist and allows her imagination to take her on an adventure. Along with her are her friends, Daphne dolphin, Teddy turtle and Oliver octopus. Today’s adventure will be a treasure hunt. On the way to the island the friends play in the water, jumping, splashing and having fun. On the island the gang searches for the treasure. They search Fountain Falls, Treasure Forest, Batty Gaves, Fig Mountain, and Funny Bones Bay. The crew takes time to make a large sand castle and splash in the water. After finding the treasure the crew head back to the ship for their journey home. The adventure leaves Penelope tired and yawning maybe it is time for a nap.

    I love children to use their imaginations. In their mind they can go anywhere, do anything, even become a pirate and find a treasure. "Penelope the Purple Pirate" by Melissa Northway is a fun book for children. Both parents and teachers will love the story as much as their children. There are questions at the end of the book that will help children with retention and comprehension. The illustrations by Paul Johnson are eye catching with their bright colors and whimsical characters. Northway has included fascinating information about dolphins, sea turtles and octopus. This book is appropriate for pre-school, kindergarten and possibly first grade classes. I very much enjoyed this book and intend to share it with my grandchildren.

    My Kids Love Penelope!

    My love Penelope; they ask to read it over and over. It teaches great values such as kindness, acceptance and concideration of others in addition to fun facts about pirates and sea life that all kids are interested in. Strongly recommended.

    This should be the next book you buy for your kids!

    My daughter loves this book! And I enjoy reading it to her, too. Penelope is a positive role model for kids - she is enthusiastic, full of imagination, and open to exploring the world around her. I am looking forward to reading more adventures about Penelope the Purple Pirate - I hope they keep coming!
