I seem to never be able to call which childrens books my kids will like.  I can pick a whole basket full from the library, and the one that they want read over and over again is not the one I would have picked.  However.  I did call this one right!

Pirates and farms are two highly intriguing subjects to toddler boys!  A darling girl is the narrator who tells the story of a group of pirates who move in next door and turn their community upside down.

The illustrations are lovely!  I am drawn to fine watercolor illustrations in vibrant colors and these are just what I love.  There is a lot to look at on every page, which keeps little ones enthralled.

The story is quite humorous, easy to follow, and just delightful!  It spreads a message about accepting those who are different than you.  While the pirates did things that were publicly inappropriate, the narrator’s family was won over (some sooner than others) and remained understanding and helpful, and that made all the difference when the Sheriff arrived with a court order for the pirates to pay for damages.

The book ends with a wonderful message and a “feel good” resolution.  I think this is a great book to read to my boys, and I hope they will pick up on the charitable message!  The funnest part of the book are the “Seadog Definitions” in the back, where pirate language is explained in a pirate accent.  Arrr!

I’d love to see what other books this author and illustrator have done together.

You can publish the book from Zondervan for $12.99 HERE.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com® <http://BookSneeze.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
