Product Details


Praise for Captain Jack and the Pirates
Shortlisted for the Kate Greeenaway Medal

“Bently’s rhyming narrative could be sung as a sea chantey . . . Gently and agreeably thrilling.”—Kirkus

“A grand adventure.”—School Library Journal

“A riveting read-aloud adventure that mirrors children’s imaginative play and has the power to inspire it.”—Booklist

Praise for King Jack and the Dragon
ALA Notable Book

* “Soft colors and the fanciful expressions on the various creatures offset any scare youngsters might find in the story, and the children’s beguiling faces are warm and friendly. A balance of brown-toned crosshatched drawings and full-color artwork adds to the easy flow of the action. A tale of make-believe that children will delight in hearing again and again.”—School Library Journal, starred review

* “Bently’s verse never misses a beat, and Oxenbury shifts between monochromatic, engraving-like drawings and pale watercolors; the images feel as if they were drawn from a classic fairy tale book and contemporary life simultaneously. It’s an enchanting tribute to both full-throttle pretend play and the reassurance of a parent’s embrace.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
