Pirate Pete and his parrot love gold. When they hear the Queen has a treasure map, they must have it. For where there is treasure, there is gold. And as Pete says (over and over again): "Where there's gold, I'm a-goin'!" Pete and his parrot steal the map and hit the high seas. As they journey to Mermaid Island, where the treasure lies, they come upon other islands that tempt Pete in his search for gold. On Candy Island, they are sure to find gold cavity fillings; on Sleepy Island, magic gold dust from the Sandman; on Clover Island, a pot of leprechaun gold! But their search is futile: the children on Candy Island brush their teeth! Sleepy Island residents read books to help them sleep! And the leprechaun's pot holds Irish stew! And these aren't their only problems. Whose ship is that on the horizon, giving chase? This funny and whimsical book will have both children and adults giggling as Pete and crew make their way toward Mermaid Island. This book is pure gold!

Over half the text and pictures are cut off. The people who gave it 5 stars didnt read this one.
I purchased this even after reading the reviews. I should have listened to the other reviews. My son was very disappointed. I could not read the book because of the missing text. I want my money back. Anonymous
Dont buy this book. Glitchy from the begining, words and pictures are broken up to the point you can not read it.
My little brother wanted me to get this book so bad! He was so dissapointed when half of the text and pics were cut of.
This book is horrible. Over half of the text is missing or cut off. Even the pictures are cut off. First book i can honestly say i want my money back!!!
This is one you and your kids will both love. Pirate Pete's calamitous island adventures make him just as lovable as Mr. Bumble. Funny and beautifully illustrated, Pirate Pete will quickly become a family favorite!
Here is a children's book with classic qualities--endearing characters, interesting plot, phenomenal illustrations--that earn it top shelf! I bought this book for my daughter, who is a fan of pirates, and she just loves it. There is incredible attention to detail in the illustrations, which is something you don't find in children's books these days. Original and captivating!
My son loves this book because of Pirate Pete himself, who is hilarious. My daughter loves the parrot, who, unlike other birds in pirate stories, has a mind of his own. He's irresistible. The illustrations are top notch, and my children have drawn some of their own interpretations of them. The text is engaging, just great!
