Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
What do pirates do? From this board book, kids will get an idealized view of a pirates life. The cover shows three kids, two of whom are wearing eye patches. The third is wearing a big black hat emblazoned with a skull and crossbones and he is holding a spyglass. Presumably, he is the captain. He and his mates hoist the sails, weigh anchor and set out for the high seas. Depending on the winds, it may be necessary to trim the sails, especially if a storm is in the area. The decks are swabbed and eventually land is sighted. Could there be a treasure chest on that exotic island? Crisp white pages set off the amusing illustrations created using acrylics. Keep your eye on the parrot that appears in every scene—he is the show stealer. Part of the "Board Buddies" series. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Kirkus Reviews
Three round-headed hearties romp their way across white backgrounds in search of treasure, judiciously applied backgrounds providing context. The text, a series of exclamatory commands-"Hoist the sails!"-provides enthusiastic accompaniment and a surprisingly rich vocabulary. Pirate neophytes will quickly respond to the bright palette and sense of fun; a pleasing introduction to an endlessly popular topic for small children. A Board Buddies book.
