Raves and Reviews

"Avast! This combination of nonsense verse and everything pirate is a guaranteed winner."--Kirkus Reviews

"With the pep and flair of a slick sales pitch, this festive, fun read by best-selling author-illustrator Brown (Polka Bats and Octopus Slacks, 1999) features plentiful and playful takes on iconic pirate trappings and accoutrements. Colorful, animated, cartoonish art captures the busy chaos, and varying illustrative scenarios convey everything from items’ uses to snazzy ruffle- and eye-patch-wearing pirate shoppers and staff....
This one is a buccaneer-buffs’ delight."

– Booklist

"An entertaining romp, even for landlubbers."

– The Horn Book
