We're Pirasaurs! We're Pirasaurs!
We rule the open seas!
We'll cannon-blast you to the past!
We do just what we please!
Meet the Pirasaurs, a ragtag team of seasoned pirate dinosaurs looking for adventure and treasure! There's fearsome Captain Rex, golden-toothed Velocimate, one-eyed Bronto Beard, and more fearsome, buccaneering beasts....as well as one new recruit who may be small, but who's eager to prove he can learn the ropes and find his place on the team.
But when a trap is set upon the Pirasaurs while looking for buried treasure, it's up to the littlest recruit to show the team that there's more to a Pirasaur than meets the eye patch!

Josh Funk cleverly combines two things our kids love, Pirates and Dinosaurs in a swashbuckling tale across the open seas where adventure and treasures abound. With plenty of buccaneering beasts, prehistoric scallywags, and mutiny, you are sure to wish you could join Captain Rex and her crew. Michael Slack's illustrations are fun and playful and puts you right in the middle of the action as a new recruit tries to prove his worth, longing to become a Pirasaurs. Your children are sure to love this book as much as I did. My students love Josh Funk. He writes the sort of books they like to read. @CeCeLibrarian
