Product Details


Both Lucas' over-the-top yarn and loopy larger-than-life ink-and-watercolor cartoon illustrations wink at readers while producing one clever surprise after another. Exhilarating pirate fare.
—Kirkus Reviews

In gently spoofing his stock characters, Lucas offers up clever, brisk prose and dialogue, which should inspire even the most hesitant thespian to let 'er rip. The handsome ink-and-watercolor pictures, rendered with plenty of blood red and marine blue, tip their hat to the incident-filled, epic seafaring tales of yore, while slyly including plenty of winks and nudges.
—Publishers Weekly

Whimsical ink and watercolor spreads enhance this farcical tale. … Children will delight in this romp, which is a welcome and fresh addition to pirate tales, with no "arrrggghhh's" to be found.
—School Library Journal

Here’s a swashbuckling tale that will delight young readers.
—Yellow Brick Road
