Ahoy, mateys! Pirate Pete and his trusty parrot are back for a rollicking good time on the high seas.

Yo-ho-ho! I wish I'd a ship,To sail to islands yonder,
I'd do anything for this wish,
Who could grant it, I wonder?

What's a pirate without his trusty ship? A sea-fairy promises Pete a ship of his own if he can return the Sea-Fairy Sapphire to the sea. The only problem is that the sapphire is on Thunder Island-and it isn't alone!

Pete must face danger, intrigue, and a particularly unfriendly nemesis as he tricks and sings his way to safety. With a yo-ho-ho and avast ye and a few scurvy dogs, readers will love to see their favorite pirate back in action and still in rare form.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kara Byrne
With the current trend of pirates in the entertainment industry, this child-sized sea adventure is sure to give little mateys a taste of swashbuckling. Pirate Pete promises a sea fairy that he will find and return the Sea Fairy Sapphire in exchange for a wondrous ship. Along his journey, Pete outsmarts a thundering giant in Bre'r Rabbit style and receives two magical wishes for a treasure map and a sword. With his wise parrot in tow, Pete completes his memorable quest. Several rhyming songs add merry interaction for readers following Pirate Pete. The tropical hues and comical island scenes bring a mild nautical feel to this playful book. The author's varied descriptions and cheerful sailor lingo make this simple text a fun one to read aloud.
Kirkus Reviews
With a touch of Disney-style Little Mermaid in the cartoon pictures and a bit of Br'er Rabbit in the story, this follow-up to Pirate Pete (2002) should keep young mateys anchored to their seats. Slowed down not a whit by his hook and peg-leg, treasure-loving Pirate Pete sets out to recover the stolen Sea-Fairy Sapphire, for which a tiny mermaid sea fairy has promised him a wondrous ship in exchange. He quickly finds out that the Sapphire is guarded by a huge but not too bright giant, who is easily tricked into throwing both pirate and twinkling gemstone into the sea/briar patch. A cheery-looking Neptune and other finny seafolk wave goodbye as Pirate Pete sails off aboard his new ship in search of "jolly good treasure to plunder!" Not the most rousing of pirate adventures, but a relatively nonviolent addition to the fleet. (Picture book. 6-8)
