Booklist - 03/15/2016 Starting with the energetic cover, this book heralds adventure. Youthful pirates swarm a ship at full mast, while the back cover presents a close-up of a one-eyed rogue, sword and parrot at the ready. True to form, Teague opens his adventure in the real world, showing dogs, children on bicycles, and a harried dad heading off to work. But soon this is all left behind, and the real fun begins. The rhyme flows smoothly, incorporating lively words (swash, adrift, jamboree) as well as appealingly challenging ones (desperado, scoundrel, lubbers, scimitar) and delightful character names (Beigebeard, Gunderboom, Peg Leg Jones). The illustrations are bright and colorful, depicting child pirates of all shapes, sizes, and genders as they leap, shout, shoot cannons, and generally create mayhem. But when the black-sailed ship of doom arrives to bring them back to reality (cleaning their room), they accept their fate, knowing there is always another day. Pair with Mary Quattlebaum’s Pirate vs. Pirate (2011) for a variation on this swashbuckling theme. - Copyright 2016 Booklist.
