~I received Captain Jack and the Pirates for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
The boys from King Jack and the Dragon are back in the swashbuckling pirate adventure, Captain Jack and the Pirates. Written by Peter Bently and with illustrations by the New York Times bestselling illustrator of Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes the Helen Oxenbury.
Jack, Zack, and Caspar are building a ship—on the beach, out of sand. When they set sail on their imaginary adventure, Jack spies an enemy pirate ship nearby. They chase after the pirates, but a storm wrecks their ship and sweeps them up on a desert island. The island isn’t totally deserted, though—their pirate enemies are there too. Just as the boys discover the pirates’ treasure (an array of delicious desserts), the pirates (their parents) capture them. But these pirates are friendly—they’re willing to share the treasure, and they throw in some ice cream just for good measure!
This cute book is for little pirates ages 3-5. This rhyming adventure takes these three little beach boys on an adventure across the high seas! I just love books that help encourage little ones to use their imaginations. An adorable book that is a fun read over and over again.
