What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

First Mate Hugh has the whole crew and the pirate ship ready, but they can’t set sail until they find a captain! Come on this swashbuckling adventure as Hugh and his scurvy seadogs try to find the perfect pirate for the job. Rather than a peg leg or a hook, it turns out that what their captain needs is the brains to lead!

Endpages adorned with lively pirate songs make this book a seaworthy tale from beginning to end!

I like the illustrations in this book and like that they’re trying to find the perfect pirate captain for their crew, but the rhyming scheme was a little more complex and changed quite a bit, which I thought took away from the flow. Fun read, and fun that there’s a song at the end!
