The digital art is bright and energetic, and it’s at its best when adding humorous asides through comic-art conventions such as sound effects and dialogue bubbles (the seabirds’ song is particularly amusing). A silly gem of a chapter book.
Milway’s cartoonlike illustrations are full of humorous details and variety, and feature such things as a treasure map, an inventory of pirate gear, tongue-in-cheek labels, and speech-bubble dialogue. This third chapter-book adventure featuring friends Pigsticks and Harold will keep readers engaged until the end.
In three short chapters, filled with clever wordplay and humorous, digitally-created cartoon illustrations, Pigsticks and Harold must think like pirates, talk like pirates, walk like pirates, and be pirates as they team up to save Tuptown in their third adventure.
