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

He then chooses to make two wishes, for a treasure map and a mighty sword. Pirate Pete’s trust ...more
I loved the trickery. My kids loved stomping their feet to make thunder sounds.
As expected, Johnny loves pirate stories.

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 is a good adventure book to introduce to children. If the you have an avid pirate fan that is young I would recommend the book.

My daughter loves this book (read with voices and singing, of course), therefore, I also have a place in my heart for it.
We like to read this with "Thunder" sound effects, boom, boom, boom!!!
Illustration was all right. Not that memorable to be honest.
Funny and silly and clever. Great for boys and girls
Cute picture book for pirate lovers!
