This book has a kind of whimsy that will appeal to kids a lot. It felt a little like Cat &The Hat in the sense that a stranger ( in this case a Pirate) shows up at young Heidi and her brothers house. He demands porridge ( which he doesn't get, and then sails the kids house in search of treasure.
Kids will love this , Adults will notice the plot holes! A fun read!

Aaron wants to give this book zero stars, even though he loved it. I [the mama] enjoyed reading it, too.
