Pirate Pete’s Giant Adventure begins with Pete in a rowboat wishing he had a ship. Along comes a sea fairy who will grant his wish if he can return the sea fairies sapphire to the ocean.

This simple story surprises with real Pirate Adventure!

Picks up immediately after the first Pirate Pete book left off.

LOVED the art, and two pages in particular--The Sea Fairies pushing Pirate Pete toward the shore of Thunder Island (simple but beautiful!), and the Laugh-Out-Loud Look in Pirate Pete's & Parrot's gigantic White Eyes as the shadow of The Giant looms overhead!

Great Fun! Very recommended! But don't stop on to "Pirate Pete's Talk Like a Pirate"...the BEST in the serie

My daughter seemed to enjoy this book, but that's primarily because she is currently obsessed with pirates. There's no moral to the story, though it seems at first as though it will be progressing towards one; it's just an adventure. The vocabulary is decent, although the pirate speaks in grammatically incorrect sentences for purposed of dialect, which is all well and good, except when you are reading to a young child just learning to speak well.

This has been sitting in my son's closet for over a year. He would never let me read it to him because I think the giant was too scary. Well tonight he finally said, "okay Dad" and it was time for some incredible adventures. This is the PERFECT bedtime story for both child and adult. And it has some cool voices that you can do when you read it to your progeny. Can't wait for more of this obviously drunk, greedy pirate-guy.

I loved the trickery. My kids loved stomping their feet to make thunder sounds.

Illustration was all right. Not that memorable to be honest.
As expected, Johnny loves pirate stories.
