Product Description
Product Details

K-Gr 3-The dastardly Captain Purplebeard and his greedy crew are on the track of ".a shipload of treasure!...Diamonds and rubies and gold beyond measure.." They set sail in their ship, The Black Hole, following a mysterious fiddle player (are those strings on his arms and legs?) who has a treasure map. Heedless of the subsequent verses of the fiddler's song, which warn of some sort of monster "pirate cruncher," the motley crew also disregards certain other strange happenings and perseveres to their ultimate end. Their fate is told mostly in rollicking but sometimes uneven rhymed text. The striking illustrations in bold colors are digitally rendered with great effect, delineating each individual pirate and slyly hinting at the surprise that's coming-visual clues that every self-respecting pirate lover will delight in pointing out knowledgeably after the first reading. An amusing book to savor and enjoy.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
