School Library Journal - 11/01/2016 K-Gr 2—It is a quiet morning out at sea, and Captain Fishbeard, Stinky Spike, and all their pirate friends are busy taking a nap, but that changes when the ship crashes into and destroys King Seabreeze's royal vessel. The king is furious and locks all the pirates away in the dungeons—which is not a great place to be cooped up with Stinky Spike, the smelliest dog on the high seas. However, their luck begins to change when Princess Petunia seeks out the best sniffer around to help her locate her lost pup, Honey. Stinky Spike takes charge and lends a paw. But finding Honey is harder than Spike and Princess Petunia thought. With help along the way, the two travel the high seas to recapture the lost poodle from Captain Bart and his band of blustering pirates. The character-driven story line is simple, yet there is complexity in the wonderful sensory language. The color illustrations aid comprehension and support and extend the text on each page. VERDICT This is a must-purchase for libraries with growing or solid collections of early reader chapter books.—Brittney Kosev, Honey/Rush Elementary, Lubbock, TX - Copyright 2016 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
