Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Edward LOVES to read. He finds a book about lost treasure at the library, and he begins to lose himself in a land of pirates and possibilities. In Edward's room, the landscape becomes a pirate ship, and his parents become part of this adventurous boy's mind. Edward saves the day when he discovers the pirates cannot read......what a fun book! I was able to read this to a class of second graders, and they seemed to enjoy it very much.
