From the Publisher
"The bold-colored illustrations and a large typeface will contribute to the book's success with beginning readers."—School Library  Journal.  
School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-Despite the prowling pirates that threaten the safety of Busytown Bay, Uncle Willy sails off, finds an island, and decides to take a nap before eating his pie. Soon, he is awakened by pirates and tossed overboard. After swimming to shore, he constructs a fake crocodile from plants and objects found on the island, crawls inside, and cleverly captures the villains. This adaptation of ``Uncle Willy and the Pirates'' from The Funniest Storybook Ever (Random, 1972) includes many of Scarry's well-known cat and mice characters. The bold-colored illustrations and a large typeface will contribute to the book's success with beginning readers.-Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA
