Recommends it for: beginning readers
Having never heard of author or illustrator I had no high expectations of this easy reader beginning chapter book. I was therefore pleasantly surprised to find a fun, imaginative story with a message for both the child and the parent. The art is also humorous and of the cartoon show quality. When Pete wishes his mom would play pirates with him he gets way more than he expected after she is hypnotized into believing she is one. Pete comes out realizing he'd better be careful what he wishes for an ...more
A very amusing tale involving a hypnotist, a boy, and his poor, unsuspecting mom. When mom thinks she's a pirate, all sorts of crazy things can happen, and it's up to her son to make things right - before it's too late!

Great read aloud to ages 4-6, and a good learn-to-read title.
For International Talk Like a Pirate Day - one of my favorite pirate books.
This book was read and tossed aside by my 7 year old a few months ago. I actually agree with it's "Step 3" level assignment. There are a few chapters but no Table of Contents. There are plenty of colorful, fun illustrations and the paragraphs are kept at about a 2 sentence length and one per page so beginner readers won't get lost or overwhelmed. My son thought it was okay and wanted to read it again. I recommend this book for the average 2nd grade reader.
It is funny. My 6 year old little girl liked a lot.
My boys (ages 4 & 8) might have liked this book more if they were into pirates. As a parent, I thought it was interesting that the people who came to the PTA meeting were all dad's and the nurse at the hospital was also a man.

My kids thought this book was so funny. It has simple sentence structure without sounding too stilted.
Another clever book great for Cora practicing her reading and fun for the rest of the family too.
Uh-oh! Pete's mom has turned into a pirate! What will we do?
Two thumbs up for The Fabulous Harold! We love this book.
