"The most endearing crew of rapscallions I've met in awhile. These 54 pirates succeed in their quest for gold and jewels but come to realize that the most valuable treasures are reading, writing, and family. A great read-aloud for an audience too young for Treasure Island with more nail-biting adventure than Swiss Family Robinson." --Summer Dawn Laurie, Books Inc.
"This exciting homage to literacy masquerading as a rollicking
pirate adventure will not only keep readers' interest, but make
them eager to seek more treasures found in books." --Yapha Nussbaum
Mason, School Librarian and two-time member of the Newbery Medal
Selection Committee "A clever, laugh-out-loud pirate story unlike
any I've read!" --Robin Bernheim, writer/producer of Star Trek:
Voyager and Star Trek: The Next Generation
