Product Details


“Cooper’s words are deliciously funny, and have several important messages to share about the value of stories. . . . Kellogg’s comical style perfectly complement’s Cooper’s flair. With the storyteller tone, lush palette, and oddball characters, they have created a whimsical adventure where a Word Wizard, and the children, are the heroes. Two prominent creators of children’s literature have combined their powers to deliver a memorably funny tale about the value of stories. For its potential to create future readers, this book is invaluable.”—School Library Journal

“Kellogg’s signature art overflows with the color, movement, and expression of a vintage carnival poster.”—Publishers Weekly

“Hungry pirates are nothing to mess with under ordinary circumstances, and these buccaneers are absolutely not ordinary. . . . A right jolly paean to the deliciousness of words.”—Kirkus Reviews
