"Caldecott Honor-winner Shannon spices up this spirited pirate tale with vivid, appropriately zany acrylics."
--Child Magazine (09/01/2003)
"Long's dry, tongue-in-cheek humor serves as an ideal springboard for Shannon's gleefully madcap illustrations."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review) (07/07/2003)
"Shannon's illustrations... are a page-turning glory. Long's clever and spirited text leaves other pirate books in the bilge."
-- (09/07/2003)
