Overview

This swashbuckling collection of pirate tales is brimful with drama and adventure on the high seas. Especially compiled for young readers, these tales combine a rich variety of storylines with lively vocabulary. Perfect for reading aloud and handsomely illustrated, The Barefoot Book of Pirates is a truly spirited anthology.

In these pages, young children will be shipped away to some fantastical places that will both enthrall and delight. In the humorous Scottish tale, they will discover how the evil crew of pirates gets more than they bargain for when they come ashore to loot the abbey and attempt to steal its bells; they will see what happens to a foolhardy merchant and his servant in "The Ship of Bones," a spooky tale from Africa; and they will meet the infamous lady pirate, Grace O'Malley, one of Ireland's most feared seafarers.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Plumbing the storytelling traditions of diverse cultures, from Japan to Morocco to Persia, both Walker and Matthews come up with treasure for this smashing pair of themed anthologies. While a few tales are standards (e.g., "The Princess and the Pea," "Sleeping Beauty"), most are not. It will be news to most readers, for example, that Robin Hood once took a seaside holiday ("Robin Hood and the Pirates"), and that the list of famous swashbucklers includes an Irish woman ("Pirate Grace"). Many of the princesses, too, deviate from familiar patterns. The Chinese "Beggar Princess" survives an attempted drowning by her new husband, only to rise above him; a picky Iroquois princess atones for a foolish decision through her brave deeds ("The Horned Snake's Wife"). The prose in both volumes is top-notch--richly embellished and seamless. Whelan's effervescent artwork recalls Jane Ray's in composition, color and use of detail and borders. She tailors her delicate watercolors to each story's country of origin. "The Abbey Bells," for instance, a Scottish pirate tale, features plaid ship's sails. Each story is presented against a different background page color, and tiny thumbnail illustrations hover about the page numbers (a pair of violins for "Music Charms the Pirates"; ankle bracelets and crown for the African "Princess Who Lost Her Hair"). Superbly executed, these buoyant volumes are must-haves for storytellers and folk- and fairy-tale fans. Ages 4-8. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Seven tales from around the world make up this collection of pirate stories. The most surprising was "Robin Hood and the Pirates." Somehow, he is never really pictured as far from his forest haunts, but in this story he is on holiday and ends up helping the fisherman defeat the nasty French pirates. "Pirate Grace" retells the story of Grace O'Malley, who when refused hospitality by the owner of Howth castle, kidnapped his son. A third tale entitled "The Ship of Bones" is a tale from Morocco about a ship sailing endlessly with a crew of skeletons who have been cursed by their evil deed. The bright and colorful illustrations will appeal to readers and the stories are wonderful read aloud.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Pirate tales with an international flavor are the focus of this collection. While yarns from Europe predominate, folklore from Japan and Morocco lends a broader scope. An entry from Ireland about the notorious Grace O'Malley balances somewhat the otherwise male representation. Source notes indicate that Walker has extensively researched the genre in order to make his uncommon selections. Unfortunately, the impact is diminished by bland retellings, and readers may find the tone of the tales too flat to suit the spirited topic of swashbuckling adventure. In addition, the full-color watercolor illustrations, while attractive, lack the verve and movement associated with stories of the high seas and rough characters. Fans of buccaneers, corsairs, and the like will probably be more gratified by high-quality nonfiction titles such as Philip Steele's Pirates (Kingfisher, 1997). Comprehensive folklore collections may benefit from this anthology of unusual legends.-Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA
