Someone else mentioned in their review (Sara Gilbert, I think?) that The Dread Crew is "full of delicious words."

I think that's a perfect way to describe this book, and why I enjoyed it as much as I did. Kate just has such a captivating style and voice.

Her writing (and this book) is also full of delicious sounds and scents and scenes I could see unfolding brilliantly in front of me.

I also think the hardcover illustrated edition is definitely worth the additional cost. The illustrations are wonderfully done, and I kept flipping back to the pirate portraits in the front and back of the book while I was reading, whenever I needed to remember which pirate was which.
