"Young pirate fans will relish every vivid and revolting detail as they root for the hero of this hilarious romp. The concise language is as keen as a scallywag's cutlass, and the words are perfectly matched by the comical illustrations."-- (05/01/2019)
"A fun, absurd, and satisfying story. Kids will laugh out loud at the goofy humour and will enjoy getting to know this resourceful young hero and motley crew of tough-but-sweet pirates."-- (05/01/2019)
"From the sweet weevils and chewy maggots to the clever gulls and intrigue, this page-turning tale has just the right blend of curdled humour and swashbuckling mystery."-- (05/01/2019)
"A rollicking, high-seas adventure full of humour and heart! With a hero who's easy to root for going up against a fearsome--and charmingly illustrated--crew of pirates, you'll be turning pages quicker than you can say 'scallywag.'"-- (05/01/2019)
"A gem from out of the deep, this book is required reading for anyone in danger of being gambled away to pirates. Funny and tender and keen as a cutlass."-- (05/01/2019)
"A pirate ship is no place for a young orphan boy, unless your boss gambles you away. With his heart set on finding out who he is and where he comes from, Kitch shows the reader how words and wit are mightier than pirates who sail the Salish Sea. This humorous story is packed with puns, pirate action, a supportive seagull, and some treasure, and is a fun tale to read aloud."-- (05/01/2019)
