Excellent Story Supported by Superb Illustrations
As the mother of 5 young boys, I immediately fell in love with this book! Cleverly written from the viewpoint of a small boy, this book incorporates plenty of piratey talk. Although it's hard to imagine that the story could be improved upon, David Shannon did just that with his humorous illustrations. (Dad trapped under the beach umbrella, Jeremy Jacob squashed in amoung sleeping pirates, with a cat's tail pressed against one cheek and a snoring pirate against the other.) This is a book my children want read over and over, and one I love to read every time they ask!
