KIRKUS REVIEW

Three round-headed hearties romp their way across white backgrounds in search of treasure, judiciously applied backgrounds providing context. The text, a series of exclamatory commands—“Hoist the sails!”—provides enthusiastic accompaniment and a surprisingly rich vocabulary. Pirate neophytes will quickly respond to the bright palette and sense of fun; a pleasing introduction to an endlessly popular topic for small children. A Board Buddies book.
