Bright, cartoon like art will appeal to kids of all ages in this swashbuckling pirate tale. The rhyming quatrains are complex enough to appeal to older kids, while the rhythm and repeating refrain of "Pirates, Ho!" will keep younger kids engaged.
In the end, this is a pleasant but not outstanding addition to the cohort of pirate picture books already on the market. Kids aged 3-6 will certainly enjoy it, especially those who adore rascally pirates!
