"The rollicking rhyme tells the tale of Victricia with humor and plenty of lively action. And the message of the book in honoring everyone's special gifts and dreams was explored without a hint of lecture or nag . . . this book is worth a three-argh salute!"
"What a fun book! Bright, cheerful illustrations in vivid colors, clever writing with some challenging vocabulary words (opportunities to teach!) and a great storyline make this comfortably rhythmic book a delight. . . . Highly recommended."
"Clickard takes rhyme and meter seriously, achieving, at her best, a Gilbert and Sullivan-like patter. . . . Meyers . . . provides lots of pirate detail and even an ironic moment or two. . . . Rollicking, sea-chantey verse and slapstick humor make this a promising readaloud." --Publishers Weekly (May 7, 2012)
"There are some books you love to read to your child, and some he prefers, but we think you'll both agree that Carrie Clickard's Victricia Malicia: Book-Loving Buccaneer will be considered a treasure. . . . Clickard's rhyming tale is a joy to read aloud."
"Clickard's masterful text is a rhyming joy to read, but one must pay attention or risk becoming tongue tied. Meyers's humorous illustrations add plenty of special touches like the fitting names on many book spines and covers. A fun read-aloud." --School Library Journal (August 2012)
