I picked up this book from the library since my 3 year old son loves pirates. What I didn't expect is this highly engaging, funny pirate's quest for his lost peg leg. This is one of my kids' favorite books now! My six year old daughter loves it just as much as my son. It is SO much fun to read aloud. I highly recommend it. We've checked it out from the library so many time, I must buy it!
