Review
Preschool-Grade 1 Pirate devotees might be surprised to learn that not only do pirates wear pajamas but they prefer to don a wide variety of styles and colors: “There are knitted ones with pom-poms, / Ones with spots and frilly sleeves; / Some are fluffy all-in-onesies, / And some hang down to the knees.” In preparation for bedtime, this particular group of mateys bathes, has wild-and-crazy pillow fights, and enjoys a glass of milk while drifting off to “pirate lullabies.” The vividly colored illustrations burst with jolly pirates joyfully cavorting about, with witty details sprinkled in, adding to the humor of the rhymed text. It is clear that each of the swashbucklers is extremely proud of his unique outfit. Even a couple of wardrobe malfunctions don’t spoil the fun. Although there are numerous picture books featuring pirates in all kinds of activities, this fun-loving crew, frolicking in their fashionable bedtime attire—almost as if in a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta—is a worthy addition to the canon. -- Enos, Randall (Reviewed 09-15-2015) (Booklist, vol 112, number 2)
