Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K-Gr 3 This book begins with the lyrics to a song with the repeating refrain, "Oh we go this way, that way,/port side, starboard/over the deep blue sea!" The pirate crew consists of a captain and a group of children, including a baby with a bottle, who find a treasure-filled wreck. The pen-and-ink, paint, and crayon illustrations are colorful, lively, bold, and humorous. After the song lyrics, the presentation takes a turn toward nonfiction with a labeled diagram of a pirate's galleon, descriptions of different types of pirate ships, pirates around the world, and some infamous bucanneers. Children will enjoy the variety and the brevity of the material. This book can be used as a springboard into more detailed stories and information about pirates.-Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH

    Worth Every Penny! So much fun!!!

    I saw a great review on this and decided to give it a go. It was every bit as good as others had said. It has an amazingly catchy tune which I find myself singing often!!! My 2 1/2 year old loves it - and she constantly puts the CD in the player on her own. My 3 mo old giggles when I sing it to him too. The book is fun and when she's older she may enjoy the pirate facts in the back of the book. When you put the CD in the computer it also plays a roughly animated version of the book with the song. My daughter is much more interested in just listening to it. A great find - i ordered more from this company just to see how those are too :)

    Perfect for my little pirates

    I have twin 3 year old boys who have really been into pirates lately. We love this book! The one that we have came with the CD which makes the book extra fun. The pictures are cute and the music is catchy.
