Praise For Twenty-Six Pirates: An Alphabet Book

* “These 26 cleverly illustrated and unexpected rhyming name choices are bound to tickle readers’ timbers. . . . The illustrations of construction paper, charcoal and colored pencils have a collage effect with comic exaggeration. . . . These little-boy buccaneers display a nice range of skin colors and hair textures. . . . Aye mateys, heave-ho with this bounty of pirate silliness.”
